I’m Ginger (or Gin, for short) – welcome to my blog!
This is a little spot where I write about writing, creativity, and life in general.
I write because I feel guided to write. And I share in case it helps others feel less alone, or brightens a day, or brings a smile, or gives a nugget of inspiration.
I’m a writer… of novels, of blog posts (although most of my older blog posts aren’t “out in the world” anymore), of short stories (although rarely those, these days) and sometimes nonfiction.
In addition to writing, I like to play with paint, read, hang out with my husband and our sweet-and-spoiled kitty, listen to music, pray, spend time breathing fresh air, and have good talks with friends.
A few other things about me… I’ve had a life-long (and sometimes debilitating) struggle with anxiety. I love Jesus. I can be a paradox in several ways. Even after decades on this earth, I’m still in the process of accepting myself as I am – and that’s okay.
I suck at small talk, I’m very introverted and shy (there’s a difference), and when you add social anxiety to the mix… well, let’s just say that connecting with others can be a challenge at times. (But oh how I value that connection with others!)
I land at INFP when it comes to Myers-Briggs. (Or INFJ, depending.)
And I’m on a spiraling journey of a pilgrimage with this life of mine.
Social media isn’t where I spend as much time as I used to, but I do still hang out on facebook and instagram a bit – and if you follow me on instagram, you’ll soon find out I post lots of pictures of our calico girl…
My latest novel is called New Life in New Melody and is available on Amazon (in paperback or kindle version) here.
Parts of New Life in New Melody were originally published in my earlier novel, In New Harmony – and a few of my blog posts talk about how one book became incorporated into the other.
In the past, I’ve also sold several short stories (for children and for adults) and I worked as a freelance greeting card writer for almost a decade.
My current writing projects include a sequel to New Life in New Melody and an assortment of other things that I dip into now and then.

Thanks for stopping by.
