I stray, and then mystories pull me back if I listen to them carefully. I have often been asked if my Christianity affects my stories, and surely it is the other way around; my stories affect my Christianity, restore me, shake me by the scruff of the neck, and pull this straying sinner into an awed faith.I have to say that my own writing, even of the scribbling just to please myself sort, keeps me focused and open to God in a way that nothing else does.
