I love a good surprise. Don’t you?
Well that is exactly what’s on tap in the near future, here at GutsIsTheKey.com; a good surprise! What do I mean?
Let me explain. One of the neatest things about social media is the possibility to build great friendships; with people who you would not otherwise meet. Such is the case with Heather Gauthier. We met through twitter several years ago and became really good friends online. The bond she had with her deceased brother and the bond I had with my deceased sister seemed to draw us together and gave us a lot to talk about. We have communicated about a lot of different topics, over quite some time. She, her husband Mark and children live in Calgary, Canada and I live in North Carolina. Yet, though we are many miles apart; social media gives us the opportunity to get to know and be good friends to each other.
I learned very early in my relationship with Heather that she has an incredible writing talent. Her pace is fast, her descriptions lucid, her illustrations entertaining and her points strong. She has a penchant in her writing for creative fiction. Ever since I have known her; I have known that she is capable of astonishing writing, in the fiction department. She has uncanny abilities in this area.
So for a long time, I have hatched a plan for she and I to work together on a writing project. A project that will highlight her work’s potential and skill and give me the opportunity, to be a part of seeing it grow and hopefully be more recognized. So with this thought in mind; Heather and I had this conversation recently online.

So, there you have it! You can look forward to at least two inspirational fiction stories here at GutsIsTheKey, from Heather Gauthier. And if you knew Heather’s talent possibilities like I do; you would be very excited about this. In fact, you should be very excited about this. She will soon be a guest author here on this site and share with us two scintillating fiction stories. Stories that I guarantee will warm your heart and add meaning to your life.
What will they be?? That is the exciting part. They are yet to be created. They will be brand new creations that will spring into existence from Heather’s mind and writing talent.
Until recently, Heather called her blog “Life is but a stage.” Even-so, she is an expert at creating an enjoyable “stage” and meaningful content with her written posts. She now calls her blog “The Back 40.” And that just means that she has even more experience to share with us now. So get ready and be looking, for the fireworks to be set off soon. Two new imaginative, creations from Heather Gauthier to be shared first here; at GutsIsTheKey.
I will announce the first of these upcoming short stories on Twitter, as the timing is worked out. I know that these stories will be fiction that helps us find faith and more meaning, in our lives. I am excited in advance, about sharing them with you.
