Review of Kat Heckenbach’s Relent

Review of Kat Heckenbach’s Relent

NAF alumna, Kat Heckenbach has a new book out, Relent. I fell in love with Finding Angel and the whole Toch Island Chronicles series, so I snapped up a copy of Relent the second she posted a link on Facebook. I then abandoned a library checkout to read it. And will admit to staying up […]

Guest Blogger: HG Ferguson “Dr. Dillard, how much of this can we attribute to ventriloquism?” I’ll never forget that question, posed to Dr. Raymond Dillard at Westminster Theological Seminary when he was teaching on the OT prophets, particularly passages such as Isaiah 8:19.

(Spoiler alert: I may or may not […]

There Has To Be a Balance!

There Has To Be a Balance!

I’m faced with a dilemma. Here’s the problem. The villain in Dividing Spirits is a demon named Axriel. An ancient, Christian-hating, apocalypse type demon. When I first wrote the novel, I created Axriel to be hard-core, evil being. He had no redeeming qualities, he didn’t think nice thoughts, or show any weakness. He would foul, […]

Christmas Demons

Seek darkness and you will find it – even in Christmas. “Do you know when Jesus Christ was born?” the man at my door asked. “Sure,” I replied. “He was born in spring. Personally I believe it was April 6th to be exact.” The man blinked, but then shrugged. “Well, yes, spring time. So do […]
