My name is C. Steven Gomez and I’m a writer hard at work on both my first novel and my Master of Arts in Theological Studies. Welcome to Marginalia, my blog named after the handwritten notes in the margins of books. It’s dedicated to reviewing books and the occasional movie. Perhaps some other kinds of writing will creep in from time to time.

I live in Vancouver, BC and have almost run out of space on my bookshelves. The books are slowly taking over the room. Soon they will take over the world. Greet them peacefully, treat them well, and they will not harm you.

  1. Steven, are you familiar with the writings of Walter Wangerin Jr? Besides novels and pastoral counsel, he has written meditations for Advent and Lent, focusing on the characters involved.

    Recently I’ve been reading Alexander McCAll Smith…the Edinburgh lawyer who wrote the Botswana stories of the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency. I’m into The Scotland Street 44 series, which he wrote in serial form for the Scotsman newspaper.

    He does light hearted stories, with interesting character development, focusing on the ordinary people, true to life in the cultures he is describing and depicting their strengths and foibles. Lots of humour.

    • You gave me a book of Wangerin’s writings a few years ago. Unfortunately it’s joined those volumes that have gone unread. Hopefully I will read it soon.
