Life is busy. Always moving. Turning at a dizzying pace. Speeding forward. Our days can be hectic and overwhelming.Image

So what’s the remedy? Stories. For centuries, stories have offered a reprieve and a rest for the weary soul. They’ve opened up new worlds and introduced us to new friends.

Come with me on this quest for a moment to breathe, to relax, to forget about our momentary troubles. Explore things that go bump in the night. Escape into happy-ever-after. Embrace hope and redemption. Experience a story.

I’m Christy Barritt, and I love telling stories. Ever since I was a child, I’ve been spinning tales. I wrote my first book in high school, and I haven’t stopped since then. I’ve been blessed to have publishers contract my work and to have wonderful readers who make me smile daily.

Speaking of stories . . . thanks for taking the time to stop by my site and to learn a little bit about my story.
