Cathy Bryant

Biography

A Texas gal by birth, Cathy enjoys spinning tales set in the fictional town of Miller's Creek, Texas, where the folks are friendly, the iced tea is sweet, and Mama Beth's front porch beckons. When she's not writing the Miller's Creek Novels, you'll find her rummaging through thrift stores or up to her elbows in yet another home improvement project in the mountain cabin she shares with her minister husband of over thirty years.

PILGRIMAGE OF PROMISE, the fourth book in the series, is a 2013 Grace Award nominee. Cathy has also written devotionals for The Upper Room devotional magazine and collaborated with other authors on two devotional books.

Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
All of my stories seem to somehow center around a spiritual theme that is part of my personal journey. After a series of events, I found myself struggling to forgive as Christ commands. The more I searched the scriptures, the more I realized that not forgiving isn't an option for believers. I researched the subject and was surprised to discover how few truly understood biblical forgiveness. How could a concept so central to our faith be so misunderstood? That was when I decided to write A BRIDGE UNBROKEN as the fifth installment in the Miller's Creek Novels.
What are you working on next?
I'm actually planning a companion Bible study on forgiveness to go along with A BRIDGE UNBROKEN. In addition, my brain has already started whirring with ideas for the next Miller's Creek Novel, which will be entitled CROSSROADS. It tells the story of a bitter prodigal who denies God until faced with her own mortality.
