Connie has been a history buff all her life, reading biographies and history since grade school. Naturally, when she considered writing a story, her first thoughts turned toward historical fiction. Her novels are set in America's Midwest and reflect her own Wisconsin farming roots. Snippets of her childhood experiences pop up in her stories.
Her life has been the fulfillment of her girlhood dreams: becoming a Lutheran school teacher, marrying a pastor, and having lots of children. Her life has taken her to both coasts (California and New Jersey) as she followed her pastor-husband in his service to various churches with their four sons. She and her husband now live in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin. Their four sons are married to wonderful Christian women, with eight grandchildren scattered from California to Washington to British Columbia to Missouri. They try to see most of them at least once a year and are very thankful for Skype!
Connie loves reading books (especially historical romance) and now writing her own stories, inserting experiences from her own teaching days. Visit her blog at conniecortright.com
