Series: Keys to the Kingdom

I was born in the wrong era.
I should have grown up in a drafty old castle, or at least a roomy manor house.
I should have worn long gowns and had my choice of horses to ride across the countryside.
Sword fights, castles, rustling silks, banners on the chill morning air should have been my daily fare.
But, no.
God saw fit to place me in America at the tail end of the 20th century.
Instead of trumpets blasting and the quiet tread of servant’s feet bringing my breakfast,
I hear sirens and jets overhead and horns from impatient drivers on the avenue.
Yet every time I open a book that tells the story of medieval times,
I can live there. I can breathe that air. I can see those sights.
Thus I came, at long last, to writing Christian medieval fiction —
weaving my own stories, researching the fascinating historical accounts,
getting lost in another world as I type furiously on my computer.
(Praise God for computers– I’d hate to write with a feather quill!)
Are you a kindred spirit?
If so, perhaps it’s time to lose yourself in my pages.
Come on in. The Castle gate is open.
