N.J. Lindquist (Nancy) has been a good friend in
the writing community since we met at a God Uses Ink
conference a few years ago. We have frequently critiqued each
other's material prior to publication. She has published a
number of youth novels, a mystery, . . . well why not visit
Eric E. Wright I have known for some time, but I
really got to know him by reading his book Through a
Country Window. Eric has worked in Asia and Ontario as a
teacher, pastor, freelance writer, and seminary professor.

Mark Clayton, Anna's nephew, is a copywriter with
over 30 years experience working with charities and
non-profits. He has worked for Partners International. That
made him my editor for A Bridge to the Mountain. Have
a look at his web site.
Linda Hall's book Sadie's Song is a must
read for people in pastoral or counselling ministry--even if
they claim not to read novels! It gives a reader insight into
abuse within the church, and becomes a tool to use with
someone in abusive circumstances. Check Linda's site for it
and other great books by this award-winning author.
Marcia Lee Laycock writes a weekly column, "The
Spur." You can read it at her website or order her book,
The Spur of the Moment. I first met Marcia at an
Inscribe conference in Edmonton. She lives in Alberta about
100 km from where I grew up--and she attended the same
college. Small world!
Donna Mann lives in Elora, near Fergus. We first
met at a God Uses Ink Christian writers conference in Guelph.
God has gifted Donna in many ways--as a pastor, a writer, and
a grief councillor. Go to her web site to check out her
newest book, WinterGrief.
Elma Schemenauer I first met in college. When we
met again years later we didn't recognize each other. Why
not? Women often change their last names and men go bald and
grow beards. Elma has written more books than many people
have read. Go to her web site and count them!
Angelina Fast-Vlaar won the First-Time Canadian
Christian Author Award for her non-fiction manuscript Seven
Angels for Seven Days: A Widow's Journey (June 2004).

Lorry Lutz and I met in South Africa as fellow
missionaries in the 1970s. She and her husband, Alan, and
family returned to the USA at about the same time we
relocated to Canada. Our contact with them continued when
they also associated with Partners International. Have a look
at her blog.
