Welcome to the Mine of Christian Fiction

Welcome! We are the Rough Diamond Writers.


Let me introduce you to the miners...



Renee Blare
Renee is a contemporary Christian writer of romance and suspense. When she's not busy working as a pharmacist, she loves spending time outdoors. She weaves faith and hope into the fabric of her fiction...where the wild meets the Forgiven. Her first book, To Soar on Eagles Wings is scheduled to be published by Prism Book Group in March of 2015.

Nancy Bolton
Nancy Bolton is a Christian writer who loves the Lord.  A wife of 41 years, she's a mother of five sons and has two beautiful grandchildren. Her portfolio includes poetry, song lyrics, short stories, non-fiction and fiction works. Women's fiction is her lastest endeavor, and she writes quite the variety from contemporary and historical romance to fantasy. Above all, she strives to show how God changes human lives in both the huge and tiny ways. Soon to be published in September, The Right Ingredients by Prism Book Group! 

 Amryn Cross

Amryn Cross (Amory Cannon) is a writer of Christian romance and suspense as well as young adult. With a blend of dust and shadows, all of her books contain the message of grace and the love of God. Her debut novel, Learning to Die will be released in September 2014 by Desert Breeze Publishing.

Misty Russon
Our fourth miner is Misty, a mother of six and a lover of storms, although she spends more time chasing the two-legged kind than her dream, the tornado. Awed by the Lord's majesty and power, and how He shows it in this world, she snaps pictures of His handiwork as well as sprinkles pages with His love in the hope of one day seeing her name on a cover. In fact, she's writing a story on her blog right now. Check it out here

Peggy Trotter 
Schoolteacher by day, Christian author by night... and loving every minute of it. Peggy Trotter loves to write about the Lord. From contemporary to historical romance, her characters find themselves in impossible situations relying on a wondrous God. Due to be published by Prism Book Group in April 2015, watch for Year of Jubilee from this miner!

Erin Unger
Illustrating children's books is one of Erin's many gifts. She's also a Christian writer of romance and suspense. Through the pen, she edifies and encourages those turning the pages to keep trekking forward for our Savior Jesus Christ.



Welcome to the Diamond Mine. Let's start digging!

Peggy Trotter said...

Woo. Sorry, just staggered out of the mine. Here, let me flip off my miner's hat light. There. Yeah Erin! your illustrations look fabulous! Perhaps we'll talk you into a few blog entries?

Peggy Trotter said...

Carlene! Thanks for stopping by! Christian Fiction is the best!

Peggy Trotter said...

Yes, she's about worn out her wrist swinging that hammer. But what a beautiful rough-cut diamond!

Peggy Trotter said...

Diane, you're the best 'gal,' and you know it! :) You should be up for mentor of the year!

Peggy Trotter said...

Hi Gay! Thanks for stopping in and supporting those Prism folks You are a jewel!

Misty Russon said...

This looks awesome! Can't wait until I can report I have a book in the works as well. Renee is doing a great job representing us. A true sister in the Lord. Thank you so much. :)

Renee Blare said...

It's just a matter of time, Misty. :)

This looks great, Renee! I'm busy editing my book and watching tutorials on how to twitter and add stuff to my website. I'm so NOT good at this, but I'm learning. My middle son likes to tease me by making a slow whirring noise when I ask him to explain techie things to me. It's our private joke about how slow my 'processor' (brain) is for this stuff! :)

Renee Blare said...

But you're learning it! I've been at this awhile now. Don't worry, we're all in this together. :)

May the K9 Spy (and KC Frantzen) said...

Congratulations ladies!

May the K9 Spy and I look forward to finding out more.

I'm a Christian and write from that worldview, though our series is not "Christian" per se.

Adore the phrase "Diamond in the Rough" - with May, we might change that last word to "Ruff" :)

J.E.B. Spredemann said...

Thanks for your work! May this blog bring God glory and build His kingdom. I hope at least one of you enjoys Amish fiction. If not, maybe I can change your mind. ;) Looking forward to reading future posts. Blessings, Jenn

Renee Blare said...

Thanks, and welcome to the Mine! I love that phrase as well. :) Shoot an email to an available author if you haven't already. I'd love to see if your gem is a diamond.

Renee Blare said...

Ahh, Amish! You never know unless you try, Jenn. Shoot an email to our miners and see what they say. :)

Peggy Trotter said...

Well, I went to high school with several, so anything is possible!
