Thanks for coming to our About Page!

Our aim is to produce excellent, relevant stories for young people, written from a Christian worldview.

We believe that every child deserves the opportunity to read Christian books, so they can decide about faith for themselves.

We’ve had some amazing feedback on our stories – here are three quick quotes:

I would happily read this book over and over again!” – Caitlin

“Another brilliant adventure!” – Matthew

This is the best book I’ve ever read!” – Emily

Most Christians made the decision to follow Jesus in their youth.

Jesus said, “Let the children come to me.”

Giving a child a Christian book is like taking a child to Jesus.

Imagine a world where every child had the opportunity to hear the good news of Jesus through stories that allows them to think through issues for themselves!

One day we will have to give an account of everything we have done. It’s time to act.

Here’s what you can do to make sure the children on your heart don’t miss out:

  1. Make a list of children you know and love, who you want to encourage in their faith.
  2. Buy a book TODAY for each of the young people on your list. (Don’t put it off! They grow up so quickly…)
  3. Pray for the children who will receive your books.

Don’t leave it to someone else. Don’t walk by on the other side. No one else might come.

Why Dernier Publishing?

Janet Wilson started Dernier Publishing when she noticed a lack of fun novels for her own children and youth club kids, written from a Christian perspective.
She says,

Janet Wilson

“As my children reached the age when they want to read books for themselves, there were so few excellent, relevant, fun Christian books about, full of exciting stories, but which still held an element of truth and biblical values.

At first, I thought, someone ought to do something about that! 

Then, after my first husband died suddenly, I realised that none of us knows how long we have on this earth… and if the Lord was calling me to do something, I’d better just do it. A huge percentage of Christians take their first steps of faith as children, and books have such a strong part in that. So I set up Dernier Publishing in a corner of my dining room!”

Thousands of children now have Christian books on their shelves (and in their hands!) that they might not otherwise have.

Janet also runs a popular and fun resource for Christians new to writing fiction for kids and teens, called Write for a Reason. You can read more here.

Would you like a speaker at your event?

Janet says, “I love sharing the Dernier vision and encouraging others to use their own gift for writing. Church groups, writing groups, schools or youth clubs: I’d love to come and talk to you. Please contact me! No event too small or large – always glad to be there if I can.”
