Who would have thought Devon would have so many Christian writers, authors and readers – here is our selection of six Christian authors in Devon who have written books that are available in our store in Exeter. While some may focus on Devon to some extent and others focus further afield they all reside in the South West of England and it is our hope that we will be able to host inhouse book signings with these authors in future.
Of course there are many more than six Christian authors in Devon and we are aware of some very exciting new titles that are in the pipeline, so be sure to subscribe to our Best Christian reads newsletter for the latest updates!
