Our Story

We know the feeling. Always searching for a new book to read, a GOOD book to read.

We have been on that never ending search. Fact is, there is a desert wasteland– a sad, gaping donut hole– labeled “clean fiction”.

We are the next generation of authors. It is our job to rise to the challenge and write good books for the glory of Christ the King!

Generation Rising: Homeschooled Authors was founded in the spring of 2017. 

The ten original members, all writer friends in the Arizona area, first pulled together to have a book table at the Arizona Families for Home Education convention that year. 

Over the years our group has changed, but our goal is forever the same: giving good books to the world.


Our writing skills may not be amazing yet, but we are always learning and improving, working towards excellence. 

We pray that our books will encourage you to draw closer to God, and hope that you will enjoy each unique story that waits between the covers.
