Do you love a good story? You know, the kind you finish and can’t stop thinking about because it changed you in some way? Me too. I’m fascinated by the plot twists that catch me off guard, the characters who make me think about my own humanity, the laugh out loud antics of those unforgettable fictional folks. If you’re like me, you’ve got a bunch of books teetering on your bedside table and the problem is that there’s not enough time in the day to devote to reading.
So what is this blog about anyway? It’s about the world of stories and the people who write them, from classic writers long since passed, to modern tales just unfolding. Folks always ask me where I get my story ideas. My response? Are you KIDDING? The world is full of wild, wacky and wonderous stories that are FAR stranger than any fiction. Many of them are stories that inspired those great authors of yesteryear. Maybe some of them will inspire you with a story idea or two!
I’m blessed to be an author of Christian fiction suspense novels for Harlequin and Moody publishers. With more than 15 books floating around out there, I’ve been honored to receive a Romantic Times Reviewer’s Choice Award, a Holt Medallion Merit Award and an ACFW Book of the Year Award. If you’d like to track me down elsewhere in the cyber universe, you can find me on Facebook, Twitter and Goodreads. 🙂 My website is danamentink.com and if you’d like to share my ‘Stranger Than Fiction’ journey, please subscribe to the blog and we’ll share our love of books, and those who write them, together.
