The Basics

My pen name is Darcy Fornier (pronounced forn-yay).  I was born in 1995.  Since it couldn’t be the nineteenth century, I’m glad it was the twentieth instead of the twenty-first.  I was born in Georgia in the lovely foothills of the Appalachians and spent my first ten years there.  I lived four and a half years in Huntsville, Alabama, including a summer spent in Chattanooga, Tennessee.  Then I spent five years back in Georgia before we moved once more to Huntsville for two years.  Now I live in a suburb of Nashville, Tennessee. (We move a lot for a family not in the military.)  I graduated from my family’s homeschool in 2013, and currently stay at home to keep house, scribble, and teach piano lessons (when I have students).

My Faith

Jesus Christ is my Saviour, and I daily strive to let Him be my Lord.  I have been saved “by grace through faith, and that not of myself.  It is the gift of God, not of works, lest I should boast.” (paraphrased from Ephesians 2:8-9)  I want everything I do to be for the glory of the LORD.  I desire to be a sincere “follower of the Way” (John 14:6).

My Likes

I like writing, reading, singing, playing piano and guitar, hiking, making bread, and crafting with yarn.  I love good, meaningful stories.  I love good music (and I have a lot of opinions on that).  I love spending time with my two sisters and my parents.  I’m picky about grammar, but I believe in breaking the rules for a good reason.  I am old-fashioned and not sorry for it.

My Weblog

(Did you know ‘blog’ is short for ‘weblog’?  I think that is so neat.  It’s a log, like a ship’s log, on the web.)

The name comes partly from my first name, Darcy.  I was named from Pride and Prejudice.  “Peculiar” is from one of my favorite Bible verses, 1 Peter 2:9:

“But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light;” (NKJV)

Where is the peculiar part?  In the King James Version, the phrase, “His own special people,” is translated, “a peculiar people.”  I am a little odd, I know; but I am supposed to be peculiar.  Special.  Set-apart.  For a very good reason.

My Dream

To become a published author.  I’d love to have you follow me on the journey!
