About Connie Rife
Connie calls herself an autodidact writer. The word autodidact is as impressive as the time it takes to teach yourself how to master a craft. Auto means "self" and "didact" comes from the Greek word for "teach." Connie learned by reading, taking home study courses, and creative writing workshops. She talked, practiced and shared with other writers who encouraged her to write her story because it was too important, not to tell. Connie has three blogs, one sharing spiritual thoughts, another on aging gracefully, and the other her author site. She is so passionate about writing that she gets up every day at 5:00 am and writes for 2hours. She's a wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. Her hobbies are genealogy, lots of crafts, too many to mention. If you ask Connie what the greatest accomplishment of her life has been? She'll tell you it's the life she created by believing in something better, "The Promise!"

The Promise: A Memoir Jan 4, 2020
Do miracles really happen, can fairytales come true, is love for real, and how does God fit into the equation? In 1967 during the turmoil of the Vietnam war and the civil rights movement, fourteen-year-old Connie had been thrust into a world of her own turbulence. Being stripped away from her parents, home, friends, and even her clothes. She finds herself wrapped in a towel, her hair dripping, listening to the long deep gulps of the drain swallowing the remnants of her old life. It is in losing everything that the miracle of The Promise comes back into view for Connie. One part of The Promise is that God will never leave her. The other part is about making fairytales come true, finding love, and creating the life she longs for. She held onto her dreams with the encouragement of God and the quirky friendship they shared.
