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. Now I live once more in Huntsville. (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 play the piano for my church.
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).
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.
(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!
