Hullo! My pen name is Darcy Fornier (pronounced forn-yay). I’ve been called an old soul, and count it one of the loveliest compliments I’ve received. I graduated from my family’s homeschool in 2013, and started seriously pursuing writing, with the goal of publishing. I’m currently working on independently publishing my first novel (and it’s about to drive me distracted, but that’s not a far trip anyway).
Jesus Christ is my Savior and Lord, but letting Him truly be “Lord” is something I still work on daily, and I reckon I’ll be working on it all the days of my life. 🙂 I like to call myself a “follower of the Way” (John 14:6).
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.
(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.
To become a published author. I’d love to have you follow me on the journey!
