Author Bio

Joanna Alonzo is the author of The Sacred Scarred: a modern-day Christian twist on Beauty & the Beast, as well as a book she classifies as devotional fiction. She is a walking paradox. She is a beautiful, albeit messy, mixture of thought and emotion, expressed in the form of hopefully readable – and relatable – stories. She is a kingdom kid, who looks forward to being a writer and storyteller even when she reaches heaven. She is passionate about the unreached, about those who have yet to know the Love she found in the arms of the Almighty. She is intrigued by the world and its people, who day by day, continue to convince her that God is the greatest Storyteller of all. Find out more about her and her work at www.joannaalonzo.com.

The Sacred Scarred

A modern-day Christian twist on Beauty & the Beast

Blurb

“Beauty can indeed come from ashes.” 

Calysta Daniels met Brendan Keefe at a time when she was embracing the true meaning of beauty and he was becoming the embodiment of a beast. Several years later, their paths crossed once again, and she agreed to a strange request to save her father from imprisonment: to live under the beast’s roof for four years.

It didn’t take long for him to realize that there was something about her that a part of him hated – something sacred threatening to expose all his scars. Scarred as they both were, she was holding on to a truth that kept her sacred, while he was holding on to a past that kept him scarred. Thus, the battle of wills raged within the beauty and the beast over what price had to be paid to make a person truly beautiful.

The Woman in the Wilderness

40-Day Allegorical Devotional Fiction

Blurb

The Woman in the Wilderness is a journey – yours and mine. It’s 40 days of seeking the heart of God. It’s 40 days of coming away, of allowing Him to allure us, to lead us into the wilderness and to speak gently to us.

This devotional was born out of wilderness seasons in my life, where I’ve felt Him beckoning towards me, drawing me to seek Him out – this God Who has always been with me, and yet is Someone I have to search out. Like a precious pearl buried in a field.

Each day of this forty-day journey begins with the story of a woman, who is going through a fantastical wilderness in search of her beloved. She faces obstacles and meets various characters. She faces both defeat and triumph. Accompanying her part of the journey is a section called Manna, which brings in the word of God and reflection on how her journey parallels our lives.

I believe that every Christian in serious and ardent pursuit of Love Divine has at some point, become The Woman in the Wilderness. If any of these resonate with you, maybe you are her too.
