About Steph Penny

G’day! I’m Steph, author of Surviving Childlessness, the second book in the Survival series following my debut book, Surviving Singledom. I’m currently working on my third book in the series, Surviving Chronic Illness. Sign up for my blog and follow me on facebook and twitter for the latest on my next book! 

I write a weekly blog called Countercultural Conversations which challenges cultural norms in church and society in general. My writing is a little quirky and always honest, and seeks to inspire Christians to live for Christ. To read my most recent blog posts, click here.

In 2022 Surviving Childlessness was listed as a finalist in the CALEB awards! The CALEBs (Christian Authors Lifting Each other’s Books) are awarded by Omega Christian Writers, an international writers’ group. And in 2020 I won the CALEB Encouragement Award for my blog!

I’m a singer/songwriter and I publish original songs online. Click here or visit YouTube to watch.

What else? I help out with worship ministry at my local church, where you can usually find me singing and jumping around behind the keyboard.

In my spare time, I work as a psychologist, helping individuals struggling with addiction and mental health issues.

When I’m not at work, you’ll find me writing, chilling out with my husband and furbaby, eating chocolate (the darker the better, amIright?), buying more books than I’ll ever read and dreaming of travel!
