More About the Author
|The Sleiman Family|
Currently, I'm focusing on my three book series with Bethany House Publishers. The cross-over YA Valiant Hearts Series offers strong young medieval women in stories of romance and adventure. Book 1, Dauntless, features a Robin Hood type heroine and is tons of fun. It was the Library Journal April 2015 pick of the month in Christian fiction and winner of the 2016 Carol Award in its genre from the American Christian Fiction Writers! Chivalrous, my Arthurian inspired story, and Courageous, my crusader tale, are now available as well.
I am represented by Tamela Hancock Murrary of The Steve Laube Agency. Since selling my first book to WhiteFire, I have also become an editor for the company. I am a member of the Inkwell Inspirations blog and ACFW. I hold publishing credits in poetry and songwriting, and I was the writer and featured teacher in a nationally distributed instructional dance video for children. I have written several songs about the plight of the Islamic people, which have been produced in association with the Christian Broadcast Network. In addition, I have taught college and high school classes in writing and literature, as well as homeschool classes in the fine arts. My new day job at Operation Blessing International writing about their humanitarian endeavors brings fresh experience and understanding to my fiction.
