About me?

Let me see…

I am a forgiven Christian, a happy wife of 38 years, a proud mother of two grown children, and a blessed “Nana” with two grandsons. Over the years God has been so, so very good to me.

I have been a busy public school teacher, a mediocre opera singer, a toe-nail painting dog groomer, a bad caterer, and now it seems a hopeful writer. Because God has blessed me, I have been published in many genres- newspapers, magazines, blogs, books, and even screenwriting.

One of my scripts, Angel in the Aisles, won a Silver Telly for excellence in cable broadcasting. Another, a modern day version of the Bible story of Esther, was produced as a full length movie entitled For a Time Like This.

A couple of my novels have made the bestseller lists for their category on Amazon this year. That has been very exciting! I continue to be amazed at what God can do with the very little I have to offer.

I am so glad you stopped by. I sure hope you enjoy your time here on my blog.

Love Never Fails,

    I ordered a free Kindle copy of Birdie saves the World Friday and read it Saturday. I was entranced. I then promptly ordered Carried Away and read it today. Your characters are wonderful. I have something I would like to discuss privately if you would like to respond to my e-mail address. AND if you think being a grandmother is fun, wait till you’re “great.”

    Thoroughly enjoyed Birdie Saves the World. Was my first time reading one of your books. Wondering if you might be considering writing a book about the interesting & mysterious Gabe Smith character?

      Hi Laurel,
      I’m so glad you enjoyed Birdie! And to answer your question, I’m hard at work on the 2nd ChristKeepers novel right now, release date for that one is Easter. But Gabe’s story is on my writing schedule for the Spring. Hopefully it’ll be an early Summer release. Thanks so much for expressing interest. Hope everything is well for you and yours this Winter! Love Never Fails, Grace

      Hi Mary,
      Thanks for stopping by. To answer your question, Magnus’s story is the next one to be published in the ChristKeepers series. The title is Hope’s Reward. It will be released early next year. I hope you’ll enjoy it when it comes out. LNF, Grace

      Hi Beth, and thanks so much for reaching out. Grace says that she is planning a spin-off series from the ChristKeepers and it will include Leah’s story. Stay tuned and thanks again!
