About Colleen L. Reece
Colleen L. Reece hasn't strayed far from her roots in Darrington, Washington. This Christian author grew up in a home without electricity and wrote her first stories by the light of a kerosene lamp. Her dreams of becoming a full-time author came to fruition at age 42 when she left a good-paying job and devoted herself to writing. "I felt compelled to use my God-given talent to help make the world a little better place."
Colleen's contemporary and historical novels focus on characters who overcome adversity with faith and laughter. Only God could inspire a small-town logger's daughter to write over 170 inspirational titles, selling more than 6,000,000 copies.
