Welcome! I’m Christy Raj. I’ve always been a book nerd – you can blame Johanna Spyri’s Heidi. I read it at the age of eight, bored after finishing my school work for the day. I had ample time to read back in the dark ages before computers and cell phones, and developed rather eclectic reading habits from browsing library shelves, thrift stores, and yard sales alike. Nancy Drew, James Fenimore Cooper, Agatha Christie, Jane Austen . . . actually I’m pretty sure I checked out those first two simultaneously. Through some strange oversight I wasn’t introduced to Narnia until I was a teen, but that just meant I enjoyed it more than I would have earlier. One husband, two degrees, three children, four major moves, and five chickens later, I read Michael Ward’s Planet Narnia and re-discovered my love for both C.S. Lewis and academic pursuit. So, here I am, in between read-alouds, boo-boo bandaging, and never-ending piles of laundry and dishes, pondering the mysteries of life, gender, and C.S. Lewis. Soli Deo Gloria.
