Hello, and welcome! My name is Rachel Starr Thomson, and I write fantasy novels and biblical nonfiction for readers like you.

If you are increasingly frustrated by the difficulty of finding novels, stories, and nonfiction that align with Christian values while being well-written, exploring serious questions, employing imagination and fun, thinking deeply, and avoiding trite answers—

Well, me too. I’m a reader like you, and I believe in the power of stories to baptize our imaginations and empower us for the lives God has called us to live.

I write fantasy fiction with a variety of settings, in standalone, series, and short story formats. My favorite themes are faith, friendship, wonder, and love. I write nonfiction that explores Scripture deeply, in search of intimacy with God, an experience of biblical spirituality, and a worldview based in the kingdom of God.

Most notably, I’m currently writing a narrative-style, deeply reflective verse-by-verse commentary on the gospel of Matthew, which you can read here.

About Me

I am a homeschool graduate from a highly creative and entrepreneurial family, the oldest of twelve kids and the proud aunt of eleven little ones. I live in the beautiful Niagara Region of southern Ontario, just down the river from the Falls. I drink far too much coffee and tea, daydream of visiting Florida all winter, and hike the Bruce Trail when I get a few minutes.

I’m the author of the Seventh World Trilogy, The Oneness Cycle, and the award-winning Chronicles of Kepos Gé, among many other books. I have written for Focus on the Family’s Boundless.org and have blogged and written for many other magazines and ministries.

As a speaker and spoken-word artist with 1:11 Ministries, I traveled across Canada, the United States, and overseas, bringing the gospel of the kingdom to tens of thousands of people in churches, camps, youth retreats, and street corners.

What I Believe

My personal statement of faith is the Apostles Creed.

On top of that, I believe:

  • The Bible is the inspired Word of God.
  • The kingdom of God is already here and not yet fully revealed.
  • Truth matters.
  • Faith is relational.
  • Community is key.
