A Rocky Mountain "hi" here from Davalynn Spencer. I'm happy to introduce author Christine Lindsay today with her unusual journey from heartbreak to publication.
How did you get into writing?
It sounds like a downer, but a broken heart got me started writing. No worries, the Lord soon brought healing into my life, and a new sense of purpose, and joy.
About 14 years ago, I was reunited with the grown daughter that I had relinquished to adoption when she was three days old. Her name is Sarah. Seeing Sarah again when she was 20 years old was one of the most wonderful moments in my life, but it shattered my heart to relive the original loss of her as my child. I was unmarried when Sarah was born. And I did what I thought was best for her.
My husband caught me crying one day, months after the reunion, and placed a brand new journal and pen into my lap, and said, “Here, write it.”
Writing was cathartic at first, but then the Lord did His thing in my heart, and soon He was encouraging me to put the emotional and spiritual healing He had given me into fictional novels to help others.
