This blog has been going since July 2008, and in that time there have been a lot of changes in my blogging (and my life). Most of the changes have been to accommodate my growing writing career.
For a long time I used my blog to think out loud about my faith: what I believed and why, and how to work that out in my life. As my writing career has progressed I have found myself more and more sharing good material from elsewhere: sermons from church and conferences, daily Bible reading commentary, and similar. While these are very helpful – they have helped me – they are no longer my own thoughts.
Over the years I have had a stroke and several grandchildren, all time-consuming things. I have written and published four history books, a poetry collection and a science fiction novel. I’m now finishing work on my second science fiction novel and starting my third. With all the work involved in publishing and promoting them it has finally got to the point where something has to go.
So, with the end of the series on James from Lizzy Smallwood, I have decided to stop blogging here. My faith is still so precious to me but I just don’t have time to write about it. I apologise to my followers and hope you will find inspiration elsewhere. This blog will stay online but will not be updated. Thanks for your support.
Ann Marie Thomas is the author of four medieval history books, a surprisingly cheerful poetry collection about her 2010 stroke, and the science fiction series Flight of the Kestrel. Book one, Intruders, is out now. Find out more at www.annmariethomas.me.uk and follow her at http://eepurl.com/bbOsyz for monthly newsletters.
