Dorrance Publishing Co. recently announced it had published a faith-based book authored by Maegan Tisdale, a teen author from Killen.

“Life and Death" captures a few frames of a young girl’s life as she works to get through day-to-day challenges, said a release from the publishing company.

“Miranda always thought faith and the afterlife were issues delegated to grown-ups,” the release said. “These were things she could tackle later. However, as her social circle expands and she must make more decisions on her own, Miranda quickly realizes that she too needs to practice faith to stay strong, even in youth.”

Maegan began writing “Life and Death,” she was just 10 years old. She was 13 at the time of the manuscript’s completion. If not writing her own book, Maegan can usually be found with her nose buried in another book. She enjoys reading, and from a young age, has understood the power of the written word. Writing has always come naturally to her.

Maegan attends a non-denominational Church, and faith is an important factor in her life, the release said. God has a purpose in everyone’s life, and she hopes “Life and Death” will help readers to see this.

“Life and Death” is a 56-page paperback with a retail price of $10. For more information, visit
