About Chad Pettit

I'm a Christian author of fantasy and historical fiction. My stories blend Biblical truth and powerful messages with elements of the supernatural in gripping, poetic prose. I'm also a poet, motivational speaker, and a teacher.

My books help people to grow closer to Christ through very human characters that live in worlds where life and faith collide.

I was born and raised in Oregon, except for an awesome couple of years in Idaho that included running completely wild on the edge of a Nez Perce reservation. Growing up with clear views of the far off mountains helped develop my imagination, and the solitude of a youth devoid of electronics gave me the chance to read and cultivate a passion for fiction.

I live in the Central Texas area with my wife and three of my boys. My fourth, and oldest, is in college, and his mom and I couldn’t be prouder.

Chad’s Books

I currently have three novellas available, and my 2019 release is in the works! My fantasy debut, Fate of the Watchman, was also my first traditionally published book through Ambassador International. My other books, Through the Needle and The Gadarene, are stand alone books but are part of a thematic series called “The Song of the Risen.”

This post was originally from my weekly devotional, Starlight Reflections.

Thinking that someone is following you is a terrifying experience, isn't it? You feel vulnerable. Exposed. Unsure of what to do or how to handle it. Ironically, though none of us want anyone to follow us in that manner, our society is geared toward gaining followers. We thrive on likes, shares, retweets, mentions, and on and on. But do we really know what it means to be followed? Do we know what it means to follow someone? 

In the last month, I've gained over a hundred new followers on social media: strangers that are able to see everything I post. They've seen pictures of me. They've been able to go to my website and learn about me. Some of them have purchased or downloaded my books. They've read my words. So, like it or not, I'm exposed. I'm vulnerable. But my fear is not for my safety.
