This I Believe

Posted by Susan McGeown on 11 January, 2010 at 9:44 Comments comments (0)

The word believe means “to accept as true or fact.”  The concept of faith goes one step further as it is “a confident belief that does not rest on logical proof or material evidence.” Both of these words involved a conscious decision to accept or reject.  When people ask me what I believe, I always think about my faith.

On Being A Woman After God's Own Heart

Posted by Susan McGeown on 10 January, 2010 at 16:35 Comments comments (0)

I am a writer of inspirational fiction:  realistic, believable stories that acknowledge the existence of worldly temptations and despairs, while at the same time using Biblical truths as solutions and encouragement for success.  My stories tell of life like it is, offer hope that things can be better; and admonish while they inspire. 


People often ask me where I get my ideas.  The easy answer ...

Motherhood & The Martyr Complex

The Martyr Complex

Well, the first thing that popped into my head was the aura that motherhood carries with it of the whole dignified, humble, nurturing person … the eternal martyr.  You know, sacrificing for the kids, the husband, the good of the home. The words selfish or even “me first” is not supposed to be attributed to a mom, is it?  We are the point wo...

My husband David and I regularly pray for Big Black Arrows, do you?  Maybe I should explain myself.  You may think we’re praying forGod to paint Big Black Arrows on the ground or on the wall or even hang one in the sky so we know unequivocally where we should to go and what we should do.  Ha, right?

 

Actually, that is exactly what we want.

Apostle Paul And Women

The Apostle Paul and Women (My Opinion)

Paul’s primary goal was to spread the truth of Jesus Christ and to fulfill Jesus’ Great Commission:  Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Fathe...

Rosamund's Bower

Posted by Susan McGeown on 13 December, 2009 at 15:31 Comments comments (0)

For more information on this book, please see my NEWS! page:  "Where Did Rosamund's Bower Go?"


My son wanted a book about knights. I made Rosamund's Bower as "knightish"as I could, but the reality – that it is an historical fiction romance – kind of misses the direction my son was hoping for!  Historical fiction stories always have a truckload of harsh realities to work with: arranged marriages for power a...

I tried for years to get an agent or sign on with a publishing house.  YEARS.  In the end, with the Lord's clear guidance, I decided to go the self publishing route.


When it came time to form my publishing company, the name - Faith Inspired Books - came quite easily. I believe firmly that each and every one of my stories is a special b...
