Beth Ann ZiarnikFiction
Beth Ann Ziarnik is co-founder of Word & Pen Christian Writers in the Fox Valley and an avid fan of romantic suspense. Her debut novel, Her Deadly Inheritance, earned two major awards—most recently the 2017 Selah Award for First Novel. Its exciting sequel, Her Deadly Reunion, releases November 15, 2018.
While honing her fiction writing skills, she tackled articles and devotional manuscripts for Christian magazines, and kept up with two monthly columns. For ten years, Together In Faith published her devotionals in "Love With Shoes On." For five years, she researched and edited the "Market News" for American Christian Fiction Writers' e-zine. In 1999, one of her profile articles took 6th Place in the Inspirational Category of Writer's Digest's Writing Competition. That piece became her first cover article, published in the May 2000 issue of The Christian Communicator. Five years later, she suddenly found herself in a speaking ministry. This allowed her to teach the true nature of love to women's groups and how-to workshops for Christian writers. About 450 of her nonfiction manuscripts have appeared in Christian newsletters, newspapers, magazines and anthologies.
