God's Transforming Truth
in Women's Fiction 

My stories show common human struggles and God's involvement. Like life, it mixes painful spiritual and emotional growth with humor, which sometimes comes in canine form.

Ten Days to an Empty Tomb

Easter has always been my favorite holiday. I'm eager to share the days leading up to that victorious day. These easy-to-read poems reveal the tension building, the healings and deliverances that preceded the crucifixion and resurrection. 

Updates: the two readings this week went very well. Hearts were touched. There are two more readings during Holy Week, but as they are private events, I'm not publishing them. Prayers for them would be appreciated. My desire is always that God be glorified.

Newcomers Grace and her pastor father work to break the strongholds over the town. When the skeleton of a girl missing for ten years is found, Cody is the prime suspect. Together the two search for truth. What will be left when long-held secrets are exposed?

My Story...

I live in the Midwest with my husband. Our lives our intertwined with the seasonal activities of the great outdoors.

IMG_20180404_125533_139 (2).jpg

In 2020, we lost Jake, whose keen nose often got him into trouble. For years, he maintained the legacy of comic canine catastrophes our other beloved animals had set. It's why a dog always seems to find its way into my stories.

Even so, my focus isn't on dogs, but people with human struggles who discover God's interest in rescuing all of us, especially from ourselves. Happy reading, and if anything touches you, I’d love to hear about it. Contact me at marymarieallen2015@gmail.com
