For starters, I've known Paeter for quite a few years now. We actually live in the same state and used to attend the same church. Actually, a discussion I had with him during a podcast interview the other day inspired me to step out of my shell and start making the rounds to get my face out into the public a little more.
To give you all a brief idea of what I do: I am a writer of edgy Christian speculative fiction. Pretty much science fiction/fantasy/horror with Christian themes sprinkled throughout. My Black Earth series came out of a need to provide great fiction that embodied Christian themes but wasn't 'corny'. Christian fiction with sexual content, violence, and characters who struggle with reality. I know this type of work might not sit well with some Christians, but this is what I know I am called to write, so I write it.
Anyway, I'm looking forward to meeting you all and digging my heels into the great community here!
