Most people, when they hear the term 'Christian fiction' automatically assume the book will have Jesus as a main character. Or they guess the book will have some pure, unsoiled protagonists with wide, brilliant white halos. These protagonists have faith that can move mountains, strike fire, and part waters. Perhaps some even think the book will have poorly disguised sermons to the reader and shouting hail, fire, and brimstone.

As writers of Christian fiction, we need to understand that creating realistic characters is essential to telling a compelling story. Sure, some Christian stories will have these types of characters and in essence, there's nothing wrong with that. However, most people want the characters to be real.

On this episode of the Write Stuff, we will be talking with award winning author Alana Terry, author the book The Beloved Daughter as she gives insight into creating realistic Christian characters even sinners can relate to.
