A little over three years ago, I embarked upon the greatest and most complicated journey of my life: writing my first novel, Caspertown. Ever since I was very young, I’ve dreamed of writing a book that would make a difference on the shelves of people all over the world. Granted, I didn’t think it would take me this long to really kick the writing into high gear, but the journey is the journey and I’m grateful for it nonetheless.
Over the last few years, so much has happened in my life. Needless to say, many of these things have hindered me from remaining consistent in writing a full Caspertown draft. I’ve gotten caught up in so many things, and yet somehow these characters haven’t stopped bouncing around in my brain. It’s one of the strangest things I’ve ever experienced; while Winnie, Marvin, and Ersee aren’t real people, their story is very real to me. There is a pull at my heart to get their story out there.
All of this to say, my passion and inspiration for this novel has been re-sparked, and now there’s a fire to put this story on paper and find a way to get it out to the world. This journey that has been so up and down, but it’s time to get consistent. It’s time to put this calling that God has placed on my life to use and write something that’s going to make that difference that I crave to make. It’s go-time.
This is the official Caspertown reboot. More to come soon.
