Hello! I'd like to introduce myself to those of you who don't know me. My name is Amanda Stephan (aka homemomma), I've been a part of Etsy since May, 2008, and I'm a fellow member of the CAST team. You probably haven't seen many posts from me in a while as I've been busy writing and finalizing my first Christian Romance novel, The Price of Trust.

I've always been a creative person, but writing has been something that I'm passionate about. It's such a wonderful feeling when you write what's in your heart and share it with someone, and they tell you that they couldn't put it down until they had read the whole thing. That's one of the biggest compliments a writer could receive.

Here's a brief synopsis of my novel ~

Carly Richards is on the run. For the last two years, she's skipped from town to town, ducking her dangerous and well-informed ex-fiance every few weeks, never settling anywhere for long. With the death of her parents, Carly's vulnerability made her trust a man with an attractive facade, now that same man tracked her across the country, always nipping at her heels, preventing her from reaching out to anyone other than her God.

I'd like to thank Sue Runyon for this opportunity ~ I appreciate your kindness!
Have a glorious day!
