Jan Ackerson lives with her husband Ben in rural Michigan. A retired high school teacher, she spends her time doing occasional freelance editing and watching reality television shows. Jan believes that learning should never stop, so in the past few years, she has worked to relearn algebra and geometry, and to relearn conversational Spanish.
She enjoys spending time with her two daughters and two granddaughters, the holders of her heart. Other interests include travel, ice cream, and most importantly, the improvement of the world through the implementation of social justice, acceptance, and expressions of grace toward all of God’s children.
Michelle Dennis Evans writes picture books, chapter books, young adult contemporary novels, and free verse poetry. Her published books have been found on the Amazon Best Seller list several times. Michelle is passionate about seeing people move forward and overcome their struggles to live a healthy fulfilling life. She believes you can find healing and hope through reading stories—fiction or truth.
Michelle spends most of her days educating, socializing, and sporting her four children. She spends her nights and early mornings writing and studying. In between, she supports her awesome husband who works tirelessly in the family business. Her life is full, and at times overflowing, but she wouldn’t have it any other way.
Theresa Santy is passionate about using her writing skills to explore the human condition and express the power of God’s love. She is the winner of the FaithWriters 2013 Page Turner Contest for her novel, On the Edge, which was published in March 2016 and is receiving outstanding reviews.
Theresa has a bachelor of science degree in accounting, an inactive CPA license, eighteen years of service as a stay-at-home mom, a heart for homeless outreach, and a a strong interest in the mental health field. In her spare time, Theresa likes to take long walks and pick up trash strewn along sidewalks and city parks. Theresa lives with her family on the coast of Southern California. She loves the Pacific Ocean, Jesus, flip-flops, laughter, and tenacious, fiery sunsets. We adore Theresa and her edgy writing style, so much so that we have given the green light for a sequel to On the Edge.
