An introduction

Welcome! You made it!

I started this blog as a “portfolio” for “serious writing” (per some professional advice that would have better suited someone else.)

Over the years, Narrative Paradise morphed into a book blog…of sorts.

I don’t write book reviews (very often) or participate in reading challenges.

I DO post book tags and gush about my favorite series.

I occasionally publish posts about faith, politics, and/or mental health.

Oh, and I MAY have turned this site into an unofficial Maggie Stiefvater fan blog.

Ahem…

More accurately, Narrative Paradise operates as an unofficial Ronan Lynch blog.

I’m not kidding.

Anyway.

Read. Comment. Explore.

Enjoy.

Shut up.
