The Engrafted Word blog began in 2014 as a place to celebrate Christian fiction through weekly author interviews and book reviews. Five years later, Savanna Kaiser still loves welcoming readers and writers to her home online.

Starting in 2019, Savanna is joining forces with Heather Snyder, a blogging friend and fellow author. Together, these two will continue to shine the spotlight on great stories and beloved authors. Watch for tales of their own writing adventures too.

We love stories, but more importantly, we love Jesus. He is our Engrafted Word, the greatest storyteller there will ever be.

Savanna Kaiser

Savanna Kaiser will never forget the day her love for writing and history first collided on Missouri soil at a Civil War Reenactment. She loves weaving little-known pieces of history from the Missouri Ozarks into her books and showing characters learning through difficult circumstances that God’s grace and promises always prevail.

Savanna’s recent work finaled in the Genesis (2018) and First Impressions (2018 & 2017) contests. She’s written over 50 published magazine articles, including a piece for Focus on the Family. She’s also a web designer, blogger, and the president of her local ACFW group.

When she and her husband, Andrew, aren’t entertaining their two-year-old with Legos and books, they enjoy hiking, gardening, and kayaking down the river by their home in the Ozarks. They love exploring Civil War battlefields and are always dreaming of their next road trip.

Heather Snyder

Heather Snyder began reading when she was five years old, and since then, books have always been part of her world. As a young girl, she thrived on library reading programs and loved writing poetry. Through the years, her love of the written word grew, and somewhere between the pages, her life experiences even became stories.

Heather graduated from Columbus State University with a Bachelors in English and Secondary Education. While at CSU, she had the honor of pursuing her dream to visit Oxford, England via their study abroad program. Her classes in England included studying the life and works of C.S Lewis and traveling the continent in order to develop her travel writing skills. She continued her education at Liberty University and earned her Masters in English.

Heather’s articles have been published in various journals and magazines for Emory University Hospital, Egleston Children’s Hospital, LifeLink of Georgia, the Georgia Transplant Foundation, and the Honors Chronicle. She has also written for CBN Europe and the Daily Megaphone. Her most recent story was published in the book People Are Good. At the end of the day, Heather is most grateful for life, family, friends, and the opportunities God gives her to share His love through the beautiful love story He has written for her.
