Edgy Christian Historical Fiction ~ M.N. Stroh

Just what is “Edgy Christian Historical Fiction”?

© M.N. Stroh 2019. All Rights Reserved.

“One might define ‘edgy’ as something new and unusual in a way that makes people uncomfortable.

“In part, my writing does. But not for the reasons you think. You see, my stories are based in a harsh era. Ventures there are not for the faint of heart. Nevertheless the focus is the adventure.

“Deep down is the ministry. My novels serve an outreach to outcasts and Christians ‘On the Edge’. Those who’ve slipped from their faith and believe they’re too damaged to come back. Those who question whether the Christian life is worthwhile. Individuals hanging by their fingertips, waiting for us to reach out and pull them from the brink.

“If that’s where you’re at…or you have a heart for them, then you’ve come to the right place.

“As a writer and lover of all things Viking era Ireland, I also endeavor to make this a place to encourage and connect with fellow writers and history buffs.

“I invite you to slip in ‘Hearthside’ and catch the latest news.

“Feel free to explore. If you decide to stay, you won’t regret it. Our clan grows continually, and we’d love for you to become a part of the community.”

I gCríost (In Christ),​ M.N. Stroh

The Simple Poet’s Pen

The carefree poet
We will call you,
You seem to know it well!

Poetic Perspectives

I'm just a simple poet,
And well that I should know it,
Lest, deceived, my head should swell
Supposing that I write so well.

Never published, never cared,
Relieved to not have been compared
To those whose pens are more refined,
Who plumb the recondite sublime.

My pen is meant for simpler things,
To simply give my thoughts their wings.
Perhaps they will return to me,
Or perch in someone else's tree,

And maybe do a little good,
At least, I surely wish they would.
If only just a little smile,
Or shorten someone's weary mile,

Or maybe by the Maker's grace,
They'll draw someone to His embrace.
A simple poet's all I am,
And glad to be a simple man.


I’m untrained in literature and the creative arts, being an engineer by training and by trade, but obviously that doesn’t…

Light my Night — 5 Minutes of Hope

God, shine forth — into my night. Dispel all worries — shine your light. God, shine forth — break every chain. Scatter the darkness — once again. God, shine forth — upon the waters. Drown me Lord — in what truly matters.

Light my Night — 5 Minutes of Hope
