Normandie and her husband Michael sail as evangelists wherever the Lord leads them on board Sea Venture, a 50-foot ketch that has been plying Pacific waters and the Sea of Cortez in recent years. She's been a sailor all her life, still plays with her sharpie, Puff, in coastal NC waters, and loves having graduated from dinghies to their on-the-water home. She studied sculpture in Italy and Washington, DC, taught sculpture and placed commissioned work in homes and offices all over the country before deciding that she really wanted to pursue her other love: writing. Having worked as an editor and technical writer, she found the transition to crafting fiction a stretch. She'd spent years paring. Now she had to enlarge, describe, manage dialogue. In the process, several novels found their way into the shredder, where they certainly belonged. Then she began a fun series, the partial of which won the Alpha Award for best new fiction at the Sandy Cove Christian Writers' Conference. But the whole wasn't quite Christian enough, said the editors. So she wrote an action memoir for actor, director, and producer Reza Fazeli entitled Survivor. It's a fun story full of murder, mayhem, and miracles, and is available in English at Amazon. Another manuscript completed, and enter an agent whose enthusiasm promised much and delivered nothing, not even with a second new women's fiction story in her hands. Exit same agent, and now here Normandie is, in the hands of professionals. Such fun. www.normandiefischer.com

I currently stay home with our two wonderful little boys- Wyatt and Rhett. I can be found coaching a group of middle school cheerleaders which serves my writing well by keeping me in touch with the youth of today and their slang, drama and texting practices!

Mike is currently the Chief Operating Officer (COO) for a mission sending agency called Greater Europe Mission with its international headquarters located in Coloado Springs, Colorado.
Several years after I graduated from law school, I discovered something profound: The strong atheistic views I’d held for so long failed miserably against the strength of God’s truth. My transformation from skeptic to believer didn’t happen instantly. As a young lawyer, I was living the life – money in my pocket and the keys to a new convertible. With a keen desire to socialize, I also consumed sizable amounts of alcohol with friends. But without warning, I was challenged by someone I met years earlier while studying for the Florida bar exam. Though my friend didn’t live near me, we stayed in touch and visited occasionally. Seeing where my life was heading, my friend urged me to read the Scriptures and come to a fresh decision concerning the meaning of my life. I was taken back that my friend would even make this suggestion. The trajectory of my life was going up at a steep angle. Life was great and getting better all the time. Why should I spend the time to consider anything else? In the end, however, I agreed to my friend’s suggestion. I anticipated I’d be calling him back in a short period of time to explain how I remained unpersuaded. But throughout my many weeks of reading the Scriptures and material on science and philosophy, the truth I uncovered eventually melted my heart of stone. At the end of this process, I told God I wanted everything He offered. I also offered my desire to say “yes” to whatever He wanted me to do. I entered a whole new life. Following the announcement of my new discoveries, I found myself standing alone. No one in my family or local circle of friends knew what to do with me. A year or so later, I began working with two very different groups of people who struggled with their faith: young adults in the church, and inmates I met through a jail ministry. People in these disparate groups asked some of the same questions I struggled with during my investigation. And like me, they didn’t want simple, trite answers. They longed for a more detailed explanation of the message offered by the Scriptures in light of everything they saw and experienced in life. They bristled when told by some to just believe and not ask questions. To help people process their questions, I’ll soon be offering a new book that explains what I discovered during my initial investigation. The Beckoning will equip readers with answers to the questions of how and why the complex parts of the environment we live in fit together. It also will explore how life doesn’t have to be an unsolvable, frustrating puzzle. God’s truths will be presented in a way so readers don’t just acquire knowledge, but understand the abundant life God offers and how to fully engage in it.

Dianne fell in love with writing at the age of five. Nature, people, animals, and airplanes captured her imagination--airplanes because her father was a barnstorming pilot with a bi-plane and she was bitten early by the dreaded “flying bug.” She attended the University of California, Santa Barbara and met and married the man God had prepared for her (an Aeronautical Engineer)! After their five children were in school, she burned the midnight oil and wrote three novels, all published by Zebra Press. When her husband died only three years after he retired, she felt drawn to visit the Outer Hebrides Isles of Scotland, where her husbands clan (MacDonalds) and her own clan (Galbraiths) originated. After many yearly trips, gallons of tea, too little sleep, and bursts of insight, her Thistle Series was born. Visit her at www.dianneprice-author.com.

After publishing a contemporary romance, Fresh Start, with The Wild Rose Press, Claire gave in to her conscience and turned her talent to inspirational romance. Once the burden of writing to please the masses was eased from her shoulders, Claire unearthed a flood of story ideas that centered around the challenges of living up to Christian ideals. Her current work-in-progress is about a terminally ill man who believes he must ease his way into heaven by seeking forgiveness from those he's wronged. He sends his nephew to the house of his ex-wife's sister in order to ask her to visit him. But she is visibly upset by the request and sends a one-line note to the dying man. I never told. The meaning of the enigmatic note and Christ's teaching about forgiveness are revealed as the nephew struggles with his loyalty to his uncle and his love for the young woman. Claire lives in the Houston area with her teenage daughter. When she's not writing, you can find her working in the garden, walking her two very spoiled dogs, and dreaming of places to travel.

I have wanted to write since I was in third grade. I earned a degree in agricultural communications from Purdue University in 1985, where my two favorite classes were soil science and creative writing. For 10 years after college I was a full-time news reporter and photographer at small local papers and one farm-oriented weekly here in Indiana. My husband and I have three children and a full-time farm in northern Indiana where we raise grain, hay, beef cattle and free-range poultry. I have sold a few devotional articles since leaving the newspaper. I am a member of ACFW and enjoy time spent with fellow Hoosier writers.
