Finding the hero in you…
Writer of three award-winning novels, L. G. Westlake is a gifted communicator, born out of a very real and raw journey with Christ. Her quest includes serving as founding director of a Crisis Pregnancy Center in Texas and both long and short-term mission work in Equatorial Guinea, Honduras, Mexico, The Philippines, India and Guatemala. Today, L.G. serves as a manager of marketing and communications for an worldwide ministry that shares God’s Word with the world.
She is a passionate student of the Word in eschatology and apologetics.
But one short conversation with L. G. and you will know that she avoids such churchy terms. L. G. is just real. And fun. Her knowledge of end-times prophecy manifests itself most fascinatingly in her “Narnia-esque” writing in the first acclaimed book Quest for the Life Tree in an allegorical Christian fantasy. Her passion for sharing the amazing news of the Gospel is evident in the first cup of coffee you have with her – or the first blog post you read.
L. G. desires to make apologetics – the defense of the truth of the Word of God – and the joy that those with a personal relationship with Christ enjoy – contagious. Originally from Waxahachie, Texas, she and her husband have three grown children and are empty-nesters in Albuquerque, New Mexico. L. G. enjoys traveling and cooking and having coffee on her patio with girlfriends who share her love of Christ and of pondering the great things He is doing!
L. G.’s latest suspense novel Calculated Risk was selected as a semi finalist in a national writing contest. In addition to her allegorical fantasy book Quest for the Life Tree, chosen as a Top 8 Book of the Year by the publisher and carried by Barnes & Noble, Lifeway, and Amazon, L. G. has had articles published in Virtue Magazine, Today’s Christian Woman, and Women of the Harvest. She has also contributed to Renew, a Devotional Magazine for Women published by Zondervan.
