The Biblical Inspiration of Michele Chynoweth (Episode 43)
On this episode of “The Romantic Side of Suspense,” my guest is Michele Chynoweth, the award-winning author of several modern-day Bible stories—contemporary novels which bring the Bible to life for today’s readers so they can better relate to God’s messages. Michele is the best-selling author of The Faithful One, The Peace Maker, The Runaway Prophet and The Jealous Son, contemporary suspense novels that re-imagine Bible stories and bring them to life for today’s readers. Michele is also a sought-after public speaker who has addressed a variety of writers’ conferences and other organizations across the country, an editor, college writing instructor, book coach and founder of the new “Your Book Done Right” Master Class online. She is a graduate of the University of Notre Dame, and lives with her husband in North East, Maryland.
“The Bible has everything in it because we’re all human beings,” Michele says. “There’s stories about human beings and all of the trials and tribulations we go through. There is a lot of suspense in there. There is a lot of heartache and challenges and triumphs. The Bible is a conglomeration of stories about us and all that we face. … I’ll never run out of material.”
