You may be wondering why I chose Recreating Ever After to be the name of my blog. It's because the words “ever after” are often associated with fairy tales and romance novels which end with the heroine and hero living “happily ever after”. Fairy tales often portray an intricately woven story filled with enchantments whether good, bad, or both and end with good ultimately triumphing over evil. Many romance novels, even some of the top sellers today, often portray exciting plots filled with explicit sexual content. These romance novels often end with the characters falling madly in love and destined for marital bliss. While both of these types of stories are popular and exciting, shouldn’t there be more to our reading than entertainment alone? The Bible in Phillipians 4:8 tells us, "Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things." Therefore the goal of recreating ever after is to re-create the idea of “ever after” so that it is no longer associated with only fairy tales and secular romance novels but, instead, is associated with inspirational fiction that uplifts and glorifies our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ; upholds Biblical principles and morals; contains exciting and unpredictable plots; and is filled with wholesome, heart-warming romance scenes. Fiction can be not only entertaining and relevant to everyday life but can also inspire us to grow closer to our Creator while we aspire to seek Him first and foremost. My novels are contemporary romance stories featuring common situations and struggles experienced in both everyday life and the Christian walk. These stories will always end as all fictional stories should with “happily ever after”.
