Music runs deep in my family, my love inherited from my mom who sang and taught herself to play the piano, and my dad who heartily belted out hymns and choruses from the church pew. As an adult, Dad was my chief cheerleader as he aged and health waned. He's gone now, but I remember a concert he arranged for me where I sang my way through the Sunday morning service. :) That will always be a point of reference for me as I remember my precious father.
I am a veteran home school mom who now teaches creative writing to homeschool teens. An alumna of Christian Writers Guild and member of American Christian Fiction Writers, I have published several non-fiction books, newsletters, a marriage column, and over ten church dramas. My byline has appeared in magazines, such as Discipleship Journal, Marriage Partnership, Mature Living, Christian Home & School, Drama Ministry, and ParentLife, as well as other print and online publications. My fiction works include Journey to Judah and Restored Hearts, recently released by OakTara. Chosen Ones, my third book in the Born for India trilogy is due out soon. www.eileenrife.com
