This is one of those days when God reminds me of one of the reasons He called me into writing. It’s more than to have my stories published. It’s more than learning the craft and writing the best stories I can. Stories to honor Him and bring His message of restoration and reconciliation to those who read my stories.
I met Rachelle through our local writing organization, North Texas Christian Writers.
Through a divine appointment, He led me to mentor and coach her on her speculative novel, The Breakout.
Here is a short blurb:
In a future where society is classified by DNA, seventeen-year-old Trina Hauk isn’t good at following the rules, despite her upbringing by the government as an elite member of the chosen genetic class. Trina has no choice in occupation, social standing or even love.
Until Kalen, her best friend and secret crush is arrested.
Now, the only way to save him is to seek help from an unlikely ally—a mysterious teenager named Jarek who is scheduled for termination. Jarek knows the prison location, but won’t tell unless Trina breaks him out of his cell.
Pulled between the pre-determined life she’s always had and her love for a boy she’s not genetically matched to, Trina must choose…before it’s too late.
Rachelle is an excellent writer with a gift for developing characters and creating a believable story world. Rachelle also possesses other traits that make for a successful writer, including an eagerness to learn and a humble, teachable spirit.
So today, I got to bask in her glory, in her diligence to her craft, in her faith in God and her obedience to His call to write, in the honor she richly deserved.
