Shelley Shepard Gray Amish fiction, Christian fiction.I live in southern Ohio with my husband, two teenagers, and two dogs My days are filled with busy activities like most any other mom and housewife But I also love to write books.Each morning, after my kids go off to school, I sit at my desk, look out my window, and dream of other places The hours fly by as I make up people and places and drink way too much coffee.Writing for Avon Inspire has truly been a dream come true Being able to spend my days in my make believe world of the Brenneman Bed and Breakfast is a true blessing I have enjoyed getting to know about the Amish culture and tapping into my faith as I show each character s progression toward a personal relationship with our Lord.Before becoming a full time writer, I taught elementary school in Texas, Arizona, and Colorado A job transfer to Ohio led my husband to encourage me to finally give writing a try After all, I had notebooks full of made up stories.I ll never forget that first book I typed in our unfinished basement It was exciting to make up a story, but also very scary I was also so embarrassed, sure someone would come out of the woodwork and point out that I wasn t a real writer But I persevered, and sold my third manuscript.Things have changed a bit Now I have a real office of my own think old guest bedroom My walls are painted pink, and than a couple of book covers decorate my walls But my days are still the same I wake up, dream about other people, and do my best to type out stories.
