Blast from the Past - Guess the Author

It's that time again. When we glimpse into the past of one of our Craftie Ladies. The first reader to correctly guess this month's author will receive a copy of said author's latest Love Inspired release. 

Ready?


Here's your clue.

That’s me, sitting in front of my little sister, Gina Dee.  We grew up as farm girls, but we always had a creative side.  She became a well-known artist who is featured in galleries across the U.S.  I’m SO proud of her, and I’ve actually named a recurring character after her in my Love Inspired series.  We were raised on a Charolais cattle farm.  I loved living on the farm, with our entire extended family living nearby.  I hated my curly hair (still do, though I’ve learned to straighten it somewhat to bypass Troll doll status), but I loved being a country girl (still do).  My grandmother made my shirt, and I remember selecting the fabric at Hancock Fabrics.  It had a Raggedy Ann print, and it made me happy simply looking at it.  My mother and grandmother made most of our clothes back then, even the jeans that I wore in this photo.  Though I don’t live on a farm now, I do live in the same neighborhood where I was raised, in North Alabama and near Lookout Mountains (where my Love Inspired series is set). 

Do you know who this is? Leave your guess in the comments to be entered in the contest.

Good luck!

  1. I'm pretty sure I know, but I'll defer to our nonauthor readers for the price. And, as an aside, my mom made most of my clothes growing up, until I learned to sew in 7th grade.

  2. Oh, my, Hancock fabrics. I'd not thought of those in years.

  3. I'm having a hard time guessing! But what a cute photo. And how cool to have a sister who's an artist now!

  4. I read this post on Friday and kept trying to figure out who the mystery author could be, LOL.
    At first I thought maybe Terri Reed, but decided no - - so my guess is Roxanne Rustand.
    I always enjoy these posts!
    Blessings, Patti Jo :)

    p.s. I'll be eager to find out who this author really is, because I've been SO curious! ;)

  6. This really has me curious. I want to know who it is. By the way, who ever you are, I've been to North Alabama recently just below Lookout Mountain in Valley Head and LOVE the area. Now, I'll be looking for your books set there.
