Congratulations, Tina Ann Forkner!

My friend Tina Ann Forkner has been waiting for this week for a long, long time.

Her first novel, Ruby Among Us, has arrived. I’ve only heard an excerpt from it ‚Äî Tina read some to a group of authors at a writers retreat a while back. She writes with vivid, sensual description, and has a heart big enough to understand a variety of memorable characters. I remember the thrill of seeing Auralia’s Colors arrive on bookstore shelves, so I’m sensing the electricity even though Tina’s several states away.

Congratulations, Tina! I know you’re going to have a lot of fun in the next few months as conversations with readers begin.

You can read an excerpt here.

About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet has two passions: writing fiction, and celebrating art — music, cinema, photography, literature — through writing and teaching. He is the author of a “memoir of dangerous moviegoing” — Through a Screen Darkly. And his four-novel fantasy series, The Auralia Thread, which begins with Auralia's Colors, was published by Random House. He speaks at universities and conferences around the world about understanding art through eyes of faith. He is earning his MFA in Creative Writing at Seattle Pacific University, where he has worked for 11 years as an editor, writer, and communications project manager. His work has been recognized in The New Yorker, TIME, The Seattle Times, IMAGE, Ravi Zacharias International — and Christianity Today, where he served as a film journalist for more than a decade. He recently began a weekly column called "Listening Closer" for Christ and Pop Culture.
