Beth Durkee (born April 9, 1969) is an American author and inspirational personality. Her message is that life is often hard, but God is with us through it all. She specializes in short reads for the Christian market that bring awareness to God’s quiet callings and His whispered presence in our daily lives.
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.
Durkee has also written YA Fantasy and Sci-Fi Novellas under the pen name Efran Myles since 2014.
Durkee contributed a small section to Ess-Jee Rautenback's 2012 novel, How to Stand for Your Marriage. She currently participates in answering questions on the How to Stand for Your Marriage Facebook page.
Durkee appeared two times in 2010 as cohost for the short-lived podcast, Covenant Warriors. After the second episode, she says, the podcast turned too dark for her liking.
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
