Beth Durkee (born 1969) is an American author and inspirational personality. Her message is that God is with us through all of life's hardships. Until a mysterious medical condition deprived her of the use of her right hand, she specialized in short reads for the Christian market that brought awareness to God’s whispered presence in our daily lives. 

March 2010 - April 2016 Beth Maintained a blog, telling personal stories and detailing her life for readers at

In 2009, Durkee’s first book, a story well rooted in her own personal experience, The Disposable Noble Wife, was released for electronic and print-on-demand publishing. During that same year, it won a Reader’s Favorite award in Christian Romance. It subsequently became an Amazon Kindle bestseller. Durkee says she wrote the book because there was a need for it and she could not find anything like it when she was undergoing the horrors of a spouse's infidelity.

Her first book was quickly followed by her first novella, Navigating Marital Abandonment, which won a Reader’s Favorite award in Relationship Self-help. A few subsequent novellas followed.

Durkee appeared as co-host in the first two episodes of the short-lived  2010 podcast, Covenant Warriors -- Marriage is for Life, hosted by Jason Smith. After the second episode, she says, the podcast changed and was not to her liking.

Durkee contributed a small section to Ess-Jee Rautenback's 2012 novel, How to Stand for Your Marriage. She currently participates in answering occasional questions on the How to Stand for Your Marriage Facebook page. 

In 2014, 2015 and 2016, Durkee wrote YA Fantasy and Sci-Fi Novellas under the pen name Efran Myles.

Beth Durkee earned her Bachelor of Science Degree from Carroll University in Waukesha, Wisconsin. She graduated in January 1992 with a liberal arts degree and minors in both Communications and Fine Arts.

In high school, Durkee conquered two hemorrhagic strokes and their associated life-threatening surgeries. Rather than take a GED exam, she finished her studies through summer school and graduated with a 3.0. She has documented a brief recollection of her experiences during this time in her novelette, Memory of Miracles.
