Natalie Monk is a Baptist pastor's daughter and home-school graduate that loves dreaming up edifying stories spiced with history, romance, and Southern humor.
     She accepted God's gift of salvation at a young age and tries to learn and grow every day in her Christian life. Her goal in writing, and in living, is to bring glory to Jesus Christ.
     When she's not photographing seniors or weddings, she enjoys fixing things, writing on her blog, crocheting, tormenting her brave piano students, being a movie junkie, and drinking a tall glass of sweet iced tea.


  1. Natalie,

    Enjoyed your site!

    Saw your comment on Beyond the Mask movie on the loop. I actually know one of the people involved in the development of that movie! He'll be glad to know you're promoting it!

  2. Hi Natalie, I stumbled across your blog and wanted to encourage you in your writing. may the Lord guide you every step of the way. By the way I am a homeschool mom of five and also a children's/young adult fiction author. I'm so glad you are building your email list--something I didn't know about until I'd written several books!
    All the best.

  3. I am looking forward to purchasing and reading your book.
    I have to ask, just to make sure I am correct, do you remember People's Baptist Church?

  4. Hi, Jaclyn! Yes, I do remember Peoples Baptist! Thank you so much for commenting and being excited about the book! Made my day to read this!
