I write Christian Historical Romance. Yes, that often entails the use of firearms in a threatening manner. Sometimes there are fistfights. There may even be (gasp!) politically incorrect but historically accurate language. But also, there is always an inspirational message and strong allusions (at least) to the gospel.
“Heather Blanton is blessed with a natural storytelling ability, an ‘old soul’ wisdom, and wide expansive heart. Her characters are vividly drawn, and in the western settings where life can be hard, over quickly, and seemingly without meaning, she reveals Larger Hands holding everyone and everything together.”
