I guess it’s time to meet your hostess. My name is Dyane Forde. I’m a social worker by profession and, years ago by God’s grace, I was able to fulfill my childhood dream of becoming a writer and author. My short stories, flash fiction, movie and book reviews are posted on blogs, anthologies, and e-magazines, and I’ve had the privilege of guest blogging for others. I have self-published an adult fantasy trilogy called, Rise of the Papilion, am the founder and publisher of the Lost Pen Magazine, offer freelance editing and coaching services via Focus Writing Services, and am a co-host of the Radiant Writers’ Community. I also like to garden, cook, and bake—basically, I’m happy as long as I have a project to fiddle with.
Since I’ve come to understand the importance of the Divine Purpose given to Christian Creatives, I’ve realized that my written works should be about more than pleasing myself or seeking worldly success. I am more convinced now than ever of the power of a writing ministry. For a list of the pieces I’ve since produced, please see the Books and Writing. To discover the story of how God transformed my vision and reset life’s purpose, visit Dyane Forde’s Writing Journey.
