About Mollie

IMG_0617My name is Mollie Joy Rushmeyer. I’m a Christian, wife, mom, writer, and owner of Writing Excellence, a copywriting and editing service.

For as long as I can remember, I have been fascinated with the written word and storytelling, not only of my own making but of others’ creation as well. As a young girl, I often dreamed up exotic, mostly melodramatic, stories and poems while sitting under (or in) some tree. When I got older, my dream of writing a novel swelled within me, and so did my desire to help others with their literary goals.

Now I write and edit for three local newspapers, help with our church’s youth group, write  Christian fiction, and run an editing and copywriting business– all with the help of lots of prayer and coffee!

Bio:

A born and bred Midwestern gal, Mollie Rushmeyer makes her home in central Minnesota with her husband and two spunky, beautiful daughters. From a young age she loved putting words to page and dreamed of becoming a writer. Now as she journeys toward publication, writing inspirational contemporary romance and young adult speculative fiction, she shares that journey with other dreamers. When she’s not nose-to-the-screen, tapping out the stories filling her head, she enjoys time with her family, getting outdoors, reading, drinking lots of coffee, travelling (at least by Google maps), and striving for organizational guru. Also a member of ACFW (American Christian Fiction Writers), FaithWriters, and a local writer group.

  1. Thanks Darlene! I really appreciate the support. Writing, and the road to getting it published, is a long, winding and sometimes lonely road. I just have to keep reminding myself that God is with me and will see it done if it’s what He wants:)

  2. Hello, your post ‘About the Author’ is very well said. I am also a new member of ACFW. I am working on my first romance novel and looking for an agent. I subscribed to your blog, and I hope I can connect with you. Dicky, http://dickyto.com

  3. Thank you very much for your kind comment, and for subscribing to my blog. And I truly do intend to post more often! My last month has been sort of consumed with writing other things. God bless, Mollie

  4. Hi Mollie – I came across your book on Authonomy, and was impressed by your comments in “About the Author”. Just thought I would encourage you to continue. We are finding it hard to find enough books with a Christian world-view for our children to read.

    I’ll have a look at your book and give some feedback.

    Cheers,

    Peter.

  5. Thank you, Peter. That is very encouraging, especially when sometimes you wonder if anybody cares to read Christian YA novels. I have found, though, that through Zondervan and some of the other Christian publishers, YA and children’s books are becoming more prevalent. Very exciting for someone who not only enjoys writing, but also reading in that genre. So glad to hear you enjoyed my bio. My hope and prayer has always been to publish a book for young people that is clean and points back to Jesus as our way to freedom and forgiveness, and to show kids that reading a Christian book does NOT mean it’s boring! Let me know what you think of my book on Authonomy. I have actually done some editing since the version on there, but I would appreciate any feedback. Do you also have a book on Authonomy?
    May God bless you and your family greatly this Christmas season. Sincerely, Mollie

  6. Hi Mollie! I’m a MN Christian YA writer as well, I saw on twitter that you were looking for agents that accept Ya, and I have been working on making a list of agents (I’m hoping to send out a query letter soon myself)! Do you have an email I could send the document to? This is so cool to find other writers out there with a similar call! Just love it!

  7. Wow, talk about poor feedback! I’m just getting back to my website. I have to admit I took a break from it and what I would call ‘formal writing’ for awhile. I had 2 major life changes– job and a new baby :). But I’m back on that winding trail again! Hope your journey is going well! Nice to hear from a fellow Minnesotan! (I totally just heard that looong ‘oh’ in my head when I typed Minnesotan! Ha ha!) Blessings to you, Mollie Rushmeyer
