Tanya Marlow, Devotional and Non-fiction (Biblical Studies, Memoir and Spirituality) Writer
Tanya Marlow, writer and author of Coming Back to God When You Feel Empty, has ten years' experience as a Christian minister, pastoral counsellor and lecturer in Biblical Theology.
In 2007, she was diagnosed with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis: living with chronic illness has shaped and refined her theology, and made her passionate about justice for marginalised people.
These are a few of her favourite things: singing opera arias, eating dark chocolate, watching the sea, taking endless photos at family reunions, and laughing at her own jokes.
She likes answering the tricky questions of faith that most avoid, and writing honestly about suffering and searching for God. She lives in a vicarage in Devon, England, with her husband and energetic son, and writes at tanyamarlow.com
