Today’s guest, Carrie Givens, is a woman of many talents. She has worked in ministry and communication for many years, is an author of two books, and recently helped to found a new publishing company, Bandersnatch Books. Carrie and I met last summer, and it was so fun to sit down and chat with her about the writing life, the publishing world, the Enneagram, her faith, and how she balances her busy life!

I had the pleasure of listening to Carrie’s newest book, Rosefire, on Audible this fall. We talk in this episode about how she dreamed up the characters of her novel and the long and winding journey of the book from formation to publication. We also take an unexpected dive into talking about the Enneagram, because recently Carrie contributed to an Enneagram devotional series. This is such a fun conversation!
