Noleen Finch was born into a family of thirteen, five brothers and five sisters; and often made up stories to entertain her younger siblings. She began writing poetry in her teens and has had numerous poems published in anthologies. She and her husband, Alan, reside in Cambridge Springs, PA. They enjoy their children and grandchildren, as well as traveling when they have the chance.
She's been on several blog-talk radio shows and the purpose for my interest is to make the public aware of the signs of child sexual abuse. My story deals with these signs, along with those of a perpetrator; and it is written under fiction but reads more like faction. I've had wonderful reviews on my story, and would love to be a part of the show to enlighten all listeners on what to watch for.
She has a website dedicated to this: www.gentlebraveheart.com /and one for the book www.afightforinnocence.com, and a FB page under the title as well.
My two guests for March are J.J. White and Quintin Peterson.
J.J. White has penned seven novels and over two hundred short stories since he began writing seriously. He has had articles and stories published in several anthologies and magazines. J.J. was recently nominated for the Pushcart Prize for his short piece Tour Bus. His novel, Prodigious Savant, was published in 2014 as part of a three book deal with Black Opal Books.

Quintin was also a liaison between the department and members of the motion picture and television industries, acting as a script consultant and technical adviser.
Both authors are new to me. I hope you can come by and listen as I discover more about each of them.

Author Debbie McGowan
She is an author and publisher based in a semi-rural corner of Lancashire, England. She writes character-driven, realist fiction, celebrating life, love and relationships. A working class girl, she ‘ran away’ to London at 17, was homeless, unemployed and then homeless again, interspersed with animal rights activism (all legal, honest ;)) and volunteer work as a mental health advocate. At 25, she went back to college to study social science— tough with two toddlers, but they had a ‘stay at home’ dad, so it worked itself out. These days, the toddlers are young women (much to their chagrin), and Debbie teaches undergraduate students, writes novels and runs an independent publishing company, occasionally grabbing an hour of sleep where she can!

Recently I was quoted in an article that's making it way around various writing circles both Christian and non-Christian alike discussing the need for edgy Christian Fiction.
In the article I state: The current Christian fiction out there seems dull, boring, and unrealistic. This doesn't apply to every single book, but the majority of Christian fiction is very white washed, clean, and shows exemplary characters of sinners who sin 'a little'. This is not to say that we don't need those books, it's good to have a benchmark to aspire to, with the ultimate goal of being like Christ. However the state of the church, particularly in the west, proves this to be opposite. Churches contain people who lie, cheat, and steal. Cynics, skeptics, and seekers sing praises to God, and don't believe a word they're singing.
I believe edgy Christian fiction addresses this by using the imagination of the mind, with real-world accuracy. It shows saints who go through life far from the peace and wisdom of God, and find their way back to Him. Of course it would have been better if they'd never fallen at all, but we all know that isn't the case."
What is edgy Christian fiction? How does it apply to us? Is there a point where we can go too far? Join me as I discuss these and other issues with my guest, author and pastor George McVey.
