J.A. loves writing embattled spirit novels — adventure and suspense with supernatural undertones. On the side, she dabbles in non-fiction articles and e-zine editing. J.A. owes many thanks Jerry Jenkins and the Christian Writer’s Guild for their support and education.

We hear you asking, What is . . .

An embattled spirit:

Man is made up of three entwined parts — body, spirit, and soul. They affect each other to depths most of us don’t realize. J.A. want to see herself and others live free and abundant lives. Therefore the blog is dedicated to both the Temple (body and soul) and the Spirit (Scripture-based) to encouraging those who believe God saves, heals, and empowers. (Isaiah 61:1) Embattled Spirit novels express J.A.’s commitment to these 2 areas.
