Hi. I'm Bethany. I was born in the 1970's (but just barely!) and I was influenced greatly by the pop culture of the 1980's. I'm the wife of an amazing guy I met online in the 1990's, the mother of two amazing sons I birthed in the 2000's, and the creator of a fictional character named Sarah Hollenbeck, who introduced herself to me in the 2010's.
Okay...that's five decades. And now I feel old. Maybe I should have phrased all of that differently...
Anyway, I'm glad you're here. Like, really glad you're here. You being here is a reminder that I am here, and the fact that I am here is a reminder that I am blessed beyond belief.
In 2014 I walked away from my career in bank management, and that meant walking away from security, and I don't just mean financial security (though that was no small concern, I assure you!). Since then, God has taken my life and turned it into a living representation of His promise which is found in Ephesians 3:20. He truly is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine!
Just like my life, this site will be continually under development, so check back often! The blog will feature some old posts and new, there will be news and release information sprinkled throughout, and please look around and find the other ways to connect with me.
As for my books, well...they're a mixed bag as well! There are some self-published general market novels which are no longer my focus, but which helped awaken this crazy, irrational love of writing that I just can't seem to shake. (And they feature an inordinate amount of Colin Firth, so there's that.) My first romantic comedy for Revell/Baker Publishing Group, The Secret Life of Sarah Hollenbeck, was released in October 2017, and that was followed by Wooing Cadie McCaffrey in May 2019. Hadley Beckett's Next Dish will be available in May of 2020, and there are more stories to come!
I look forward to getting to know you as we travel on this journey together!
