Sybil Bates McCormackHi. My name is Sybil Bates McCormack. Welcome to my blog, Christian Romance/Pulsating Suspense. One day, in the not-too- distant future (LOL!), I hope to be published in the Christian or Inspirational Romance/Legal Suspense genre.

So, what makes me think I can write Christian Legal Suspense novels? For starters, I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in English from Cornell University. I also possess a Juris Doctorate (i.e., law degree) from Texas Southern University.

Though a native Californian, I live in Metro Atlanta where I’ve been a licensed Georgia lawyer since 1998.

And what about writing Christian Romantic Suspense? Okay. I don’t claim to be an expert on that score, but I am the wife of a wonderful bi-vocational pastor and the mother of two gifted, talented, challenging school-aged children. I am also a member of American Christian Fiction Writers (“ACFW”), Romance Writers of America (“RWA”) and RWA’s Faith Hope & Love (inspirational fiction) chapter (“FHL”).

So, what’s the plan? Now the stay-at-home mom of a rambunctious school-aged son and a multi-talented teenaged daughter, I write healthcare proposals for a living during the day, lurch haltingly toward fulfilling the dream of writing Christian Romantic Suspense and Inspy Legal Suspense novels at night, and share in the inevitable joys and upheavals of launching a start-up church ministry alongside my husband.

As if that weren’t enough, I stretch myself way too thin on social media.

Don’t believe me? Okay. Here goes. Follow me on Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter, friend me on GoodReads, connect with me on LinkedIn, and circle me on Google+. Oh, and don’t forget to subscribe to The InspyReader Gazette, my Christian Book Review newspaper. Believe me now?

  1. I found your blog through Goodreads. I, too, look forward to reading your books. The fact that you already have the background in the kind of novel you want to write is a great advantage. It’s easy, too, to study how to write romance that Christian fans can enjoy. Much success to you and thanks for your reviews.
