This blog is written by Katherine Bolger Hyde (Bolger as in Ray, the Scarecrow, with a soft “g”). Some of the most important things about me are that I’m an Orthodox Christian, a writer, and a reader. (I’m also a wife, mother, editor, singer, needleworker, house-design aficionado, and wouldabeen dancer, but this blog won’t focus on those things as much.)
I’m not a travel writer; the “Wayfaring” in the blog title refers to the pilgrimage of the Christian life (as in the spiritual, “I’m just a poor wayfaring stranger, traveling through this world of woe”). I’ll be blogging about my own journey as a Christian writer and reader, insofar as I think it likely to edify anyone else.
I write (and mostly read) what I’ve heard called “God-haunted fiction”: fiction in which the whisper of Grace can be heard through the characters and their lives. As of the start date of this blog (1/1/10), I’ve published one short story and one children’s picture book, Lucia, Saint of Light, and I’ve written two novels which have yet to be published. You can read more about all of them on my website.
See the “Favorite Reads” page for a dynamic list of books I’ve found inspiring, helpful, memorable, or just plain fabulous.
