Dear Readers,

Hello, and welcome to my little corner of the Internet! I’m Maribeth, a small-town Southern girl captivated by well-spun tales, the beauty and lovingkindness of my Triune God, and the power of the contemplative, Christ-centered life.  A Writer’s Tale is where I indulge my geeky, philosophical side by writing LOTS of book, TV, and movie reviews from a Christian worldview and imagination, while also sharing periodic updates on my upcoming novel, Operation Lionhearted. I hope you enjoy your stay here!

Questions or comments? A movie/book/TV recommendation? A request for my review of a specific movie, book, or show–or maybe even a musical? (I do love a good musical, after all.) If you’d like to contact me directly, feel free to do so! And don’t worry, I won’t sell your contact information or anything like that. I’m a nice blogger, I promise.
