Meet the Novel Renaissance authors:

Rachel Phifer
Rachel holds a B.A. in English and psychology and while she’s been a writer since she first learned to hold a pencil, she’s been seriously studying the craft of writing just over a decade. Her first published novel, The Language of Sparrows, won the Genesis award and was a finalist for the ACFW Carol award for contemporary novels. She lives in Houston, where she juggles raising two girls with a full time job and her writing career. 

Christine Lindsay:
Irish-born Christine Lindsay is author of multi-award-winning Christian fiction. Some of her awards are the ACFW Genesis, The Grace Award, and Canada’s The Word Guild Award. Christine’s ancestors and birthplace inspire much of her writing, but it was her experience in relinquishing her baby girl to adoption in 1979 and to her reunion with her birth-daughter in 1999 that sets the spiritual tone of Christine’s novels. God can truly turn our broken hearts into our greatest joys. A busy writer and speaker, Christine and her husband make their home on the west coast of Canada and enjoy their grown family and grandchildren. Christine is currently writing her seventh book.

Christine is also currently shortlisted for 2017 The Word Guild Award in the Memoir Category for Finding Sarah Finding Me.

Finding Sarah Finding Me has the honor of being a finalist in the 2017 Blue Ridge Mountains Selah Award. 

Christine's latest historical romance Sofi's Bridge is also shortlisted for 2017 Readers' Choice Award in the Faith Hope & Love Chapter of Romance Writers' of America.
