Welcome!

Ah, welcome to my humble blog! It's so good to have you here with me! Since I'm just beginning this blog and therefore you'll have no earthly idea who I am or what I do, let me tell you a bit about myself - my name is Elizabeth Anne McKinney (duh, right?) and I am a writer. I've written 3 books and the first is soon to be published in the young adult fantasy genre. I started writing at age 3 and it is very plain to me that this is God's gift to me and the purpose of my life - glorifying Him through my writing. Now I know it'll be hard to get the book published, out in the open, and actually make a profit, but hey, God's done things WAY bigger than getting a 15 year old's book published, am I right? So I'm not worried about the future; what God wants for me is gonna happen and I couldn't ask for a better pilot of my life.
           So what're my books about, you ask? Well, here's a little snippet I've pulled together to explain:

  Her sister has run off with a man their mother forbade her to ever speak with again. Her mother knows more than she is letting on about the trip she has asked Elysia to make to the continent’s capital. A sixteen-year-old boy, stolen from his home as a child, becomes her dear friend and consolation whilst they are imprisoned together by humans. A man she has never seen before develops an irrevocable mental bond with her that is so strong, they cannot even tell their own thoughts, dreams, wishes, and emotions apart. A strange rock is brought back from Paradis, the Land of the Dead. Things are going on before Elysia’s eyes she would have never dreamed could happen. She is caught up in events that she never should have witnessed. She cannot be sure of anything anymore, even who is in the right, and who is wrong.          
        The daughter of respectable parents and quite comfortable to spend all her life in her quaint hometown of Aseamir, Elysia didn’t realise exactly how big and fierce the world is when she agrees to journey to her country’s capitol on a mission for her father. Even before she leaves, she seems to be plagued by misfortunes, and things only get worse as her journey progresses. But now that she’s begun, things are set in motion that cannot be reversed, no matter how much she wishes it. There’s no going back now…

Maybe not that exciting, but hey, I'm not published yet :).  The second and third books are sequels and I intend for there to be 7-8 books in the series.  My band teacher is currently reading and critiquing my book and as soon as he's done, I'll send it off to an agent. I'm so excited!! After 4 years of work, they're going to be published!
       So stay with me, if you will, and let's see just how great God is!


Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. — Romans 5:1
