Glynna Kaye

Although Glynna Kaye now lives in Arizona, some of her favorite memories are of growing up in small Midwestern statesIowa, Missouri, Illinoisand vacations spent in another rural town with the Texan side of the family. She can trace her love of storytelling to the many times a houseful of great aunts and uncles gathered with her Iowa grandma to share hours of what they called "windjammers"candid, heartwarming, poignant and often humorous tales of their youth and young adulthood.

Before she could read, Glynna pecked out stories on her grandparents' old manual Remington typewriter and her mom circled any words she'd accidentally created! By third grade she received her first byline for a poem in a church newsletter and, along with her equally imaginative sister and cousins, was soon writing short stories as well as plays to be performed in Grandma's basement "theater."

On down the road, her unpublished manuscripts garnered contest recognition, including first place wins in American Christian Fiction Writers' "Genesis" and RWA Faith, Hope & Love's "Touched by Love."
