Glynna's Bio

Although Glynna Kaye now lives in Arizona, some of her favorite memories are of growing up in small Midwestern states—Iowa, Missouri, Illinois—and vacations spent in another rural town with the Texan side of the family. She can trace her love of storytelling to the many times a houseful of great aunts and uncles gathered with her Iowa grandma to share hours of what they called "windjammers"—candid, heartwarming, poignant and often humorous tales of their youth and young adulthood.

Before she could read, Glynna pecked out stories on her grandparents' old manual Remington typewriter and her mom circled any words she'd accidentally created! By third grade she received her first byline for a poem in a church newsletter and, along with her equally imaginative sister and cousins, was soon writing short stories as well as plays to be performed in Grandma's basement "theater."

On down the road, her unpublished manuscripts garnered contest recognition, including first place wins in American Christian Fiction Writers' "Genesis" and RWA Faith, Hope & Love's "Touched by Love."

In December 2008 Glynna was notified that her entry in another contest had been selected for first place by the finals judge, an editor from Steeple Hill Books who requested to see the full manuscript. She shipped it off in January 2009 and a week after it arrived on the publisher's New York doorstep, she got "The Call" that Dreaming of Home would be an October 2009 Steeple Hill Love Inspired release!

Glynna's delighted to share her stories with readers and hopes they enjoying reading them as much as she enjoys writing them!
