About the Author

Hi all,

My husband, Paul and I recently retired onto my mother’s property. She asked us to live on the property with her after my father’s passing. Paul retired from the senior pastor role at Friendship Bible Church. Before we retired from full-time pastoral work, we realized we were not done with ministry, and the Lord had us set up a missionary ministry to help other pastors in small, plateau, or declining churches. God has been blessing us with this ministry as we help other pastors and churches move forward for the work of God’s kingdom.

I’m the proud grandmother to 8 grandchildren and four great-grandchildren, each with their own unique personalities. I continue to marvel at God’s creativity and ability to make everyone unique and wonderfully made. 

Concerning my writing, it is a gift from the Lord. My goal is to be found worthy of the task He’s given me and honorable in all I do. I love the opportunity to meet and speak with folks who are called to write or who have been touched by some of my writing. It confirms that I’m doing what the Lord has called me to do.

I’m also the founder of American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW). Years ago, I began hosting writer workshops on America Online; then I brought those workshops out to the Internet. One of the reasons for these workshops was the desire to help others develop the craft of writing Christian Fiction. Today, I’m happy to report that it is still the foundation of ACFW.

I love hearing from my readers, so by all means, drop me a line at
