Marji Laine: Faith~Driven Fiction

. . . Authentic and Intense



I have spent every available hour for the last three days writing my little tail end off – well, you know – but not on my usual fare. I haven’t added a letter to my new story idea, nor have I revised so much as a comma on my WIP, and I haven’t even set up my blog articles for this week.

But I’ve had a blast researching the medieval time period and setting up content for a website and a blog full of articles. This year, the Texas Christian Homeschool Prom, in which I’ve been involved for going on six years, is themed The Kingdom and we’re mixing the chivalry and elegance of the Medieval period with the amazing opulence and splendor of God’s kingdom to come.

It’s not really a stretch.

I’ve added articles on the feudal system, knights, ladies, armor, castles, and even the peasantry and I’m pretty pleased with how they turned out. But seriously, these articles, for all the hours I put into them, are nothing compared to the prom itself. The team that puts them together pulls out all the stops to create the most amazing night full of memories. I’m so pleased that I’ve gotten to be involved!

By all means go wander through the beautiful pictures and interesting tidbits that I was able to uncover.

So as a result I don’t have a book to review today, but I’d love to hear about a book that you’ve just finished! Please share!

Marji is a recently "graduated" homeschooling mom whose twin girls have blessed her by sticking around the nest for a little longer. She spends her days directing the children’s music program at her church and working with the authors of Write Integrity Press to put out the best possible version of their books. 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.

  1. Looks awesome! I know a lot of kids are excited 🙂


  2. Oh I'm the same way. When I start a book, a good one, I don't like to put it down until I'm at the end. I'm not so great at reading a little here or there.Fable: Blood Ties sounds like just the type of story that will keep me busy for days on end!


  3. Pictures look great, Marji. The Medieval era is one of my favorite time periods to explore. Hope to write a story that takes place in that setting one day. I just finished a book that was based on an epic fantasy video game, lol. It was called Fable: Blood Ties. My hubby jokes that once I get involved with a storyline, I have to become borderline obesessed 🙂


  4. This sounds like a fun prom! How awesome and creative.
