Welcoming Annie Wald to the River North Family
We’re excited to welcome Annie Wald to our River North family of authors. Annie’s book, Walk with Me, releases in September 2012. Inspired by the timeless classic Pilgrim’s Progress, Annie’s book exposes the journey of marriage as the epic passage that it is and the refining process it can become.
“Peter and Celeste choose to travel as one on the lifelong journey to the King’s City. They are blissfully in love and bound to each other by the Cords of Commitment but they discover that the journey is much more difficult than they expected. When they find themselves laboring through the Swamp of Selfishness, crossing the dismal Plains of Distance, and nearly becoming separated by the River of Unfaithfulness, their love for each other and for the King is challenged. They must choose whether to continue on together, not knowing if they can be warmed again by the Kindling of Affection, or visit the Valley of Cut Cords to journey alone once more.”
Annie’s fiction has been published in numerous journals including Image, The Southern Review and The North American Review. Her short stories have also been included in the anthology series, Not Safe But Good, edited by Bret Lott and published by Thomas Nelson. She is the author of a young adult novel, The Counterfeit Collection (Tyndale) and she has written feature articles for many publications such as Guideposts, Leadership, and Partnership.
Before writing full-time, she worked in book publishing as an acquisitions editor and was Editor-in-Chief at Princeton University Press. Since 2000, she has lived in Morocco where her husband is the pastor of Rabat International Church. They have two married daughters and four grandchildren.
