Author: Marji Laine

Marji is a homeschooling mom with teenage twins left in the nest. She spends her days transporting to and from volleyball, teaching writing classes at a local coop, and directing the children’s music program at her church. Raised in suburban Dallas, she got her first taste of writing through the stories of brilliant authors of their day, Mignon Eberhart and Phyllis A. Whitney, and through stage experience. After directing and acting in productions for decades, Marji started writing her own scripts. From that early beginning, she delved into creating scintillating suspense with a side of Texas sassy. She invites readers to unravel their inspiration, seeking a deeper knowledge of the Lord’s Great Mystery that invites us all.

  7. What a timely post! I'm nearing the edits on my own novel, and sometimes I feel all rushed, as if I'm not editing quickly enough, querying quickly enough, and so on. But why rush? It'll get done when it gets done.

  9. I hear you, Marji. Patience is a fruit that is slow (and oftentimes difficult) to cultivate. But God is surely moving in your life. Your family will be in my prayers.
