Melissa Stud­dard talks with Eliz­a­beth Cun­ning­ham, nov­el­ist, poet, inter­faith min­is­ter, and coun­selor. Cun­ning­ham is the direct descen­dant of nine gen­er­a­tions of Epis­co­pal priests and grew up hear­ing rich litur­gi­cal and bib­li­cal lan­guage, which, among other lit­er­ary and per­sonal influ­ences, strongly informs her writ­ing.

The novel Red-Robed Priestessthe fourth of The Maeve Chron­i­cles will be released in mid-November. Cun­ning­ham has stated that both The Maeve Chron­i­cles and her inter­faith min­istry express her pro­found desire to rec­on­cile her Chris­t­ian roots with her call to explore the divine feminine.
