Colleen L Reece


USA flag (b.1935)

Although award-winning author/teacher/speaker Colleen L. Reece won a bicycle with her writing skills at age 11, she didn't take her God-given talent seriously until after she turned 40. In the 24 years since, she has accumulated 123 book and 1300+ story/article sales. She now has over 2 million book copies in print--and there isn't a bad word or questionable situation in any of them, proving you don't have to compromise your standards to succeed.

Born and raised in Darrington, WA, Colleen learned to read by the light of a kerosene lamp before she went to school. The Calling of Elizabeth Courtland is based her great-grandfather's coming to Darrington in the early 1900s and founding the first church in the tiny frontier community.

Twice voted Favorite Author by Heartsong Presents Book Clubs, Colleen has mentored some of today's best-known Christian authors. In addition to inspirational novels, she authored the popular Juli Scott Super Sleuth teen mystery series, a Nature Storybook Trilogy, and several best-selling gift books.
