No story will be written without some tears, and more blood. A story without a heart is dead, and the only place it will get a heart is from the author.
Who am I?
I am Athelas Hale, at the service of you and your family. I live in a family of thirteen (though two live away from home), bake
too many cookies, and write Christian fantasy. Yet last, and certainly not last (“Because you are the most important.”), I am a Christian. I live each day cleansed with the blood of Jesus, the Christ, our Messiah. I live in the Central States, surrounded by trees that hide too many ticks (evil things, those) but have a beauty that makes up for the wretched parasites.
Welcome to the blog.
Hopefully, you’ll find enough writing fuel to sustain you for the time you’re here. You’ll find writing prompts, author interviews, character interviews, articles on proper craftsmanship of novels—though I, by no means, know everything there is to know. Every now and then, we’ll have a blog tour stop by, or I’ll have the pleasure of hosting a cover reveal.
If you’re a writer, or a reader, or even a normal human being, this blog might hold some interest for you.
I’d love to hear from you! Be forewarned that I have times that I’m a wretchedly slow replier. Email me at craftingstoriesinred(at)gmail(dot)com.
