It’s Wednesday, so that must mean it’s that time again. Round 9 in my Name This Author blog series.
This Inspirational author grew up in a family of 8 (with one bathroom!). Now her family of four lives in a house with four bathrooms. A much better situation, except when they have to be cleaned. The author of ten books, she has written a fictionalized account about one of her children. Four of her novels have been finalists for the ACFW Book of the Year, now the Carol Award. (Click photos for larger images.)
- Entrant must put their guess in a comment on the Write Thinking blog (commenters must sign in using any of a number of different methods: Typepad ID, Facebook ID, Twitter ID, Google ID, Blogger ID, etc.). Commenting on Facebook or Twitter doesn’t count toward a chance to win.
- Entrant must have a USA mailing address to be eligible to win a book. (Sorry. Cost of postage outside the US is too prohibitive.)
- The first person to name the featured author correctly wins a Robin Lee Hatcher novel (of Robin’s choice). If no one has guessed correctly by Friday morning, there will be no winner for this round.
- If there is a winner, he or she will be announced in an update at the bottom of this post. If the winner fails to contact Robin at her Write Thinking email address (see left sidebar) with his/her mailing address, no prize will be awarded to a runner-up.
- No one who has won a book within one month is eligible to win.
Be sure to check back to this post to see the answer and to see if you have won.
UPDATE (1/14/11): Surprise! We stumped you! For only the second time since I started the Name This Author series of posts, readers of Write Thinking failed to guess the author in the photos. But boy, were there some great guesses. Thanks, everyone, for playing.
The answer is …
Maureen Lang has always had a passion for writing. She hand wrote her first novel around the age of ten, put the pages into a notebook she covered with soft deerskin for a “hardback” cover (nothing but the best!) then passed it around the neighborhood for rave reviews. It was so much fun she’s been writing ever since. Eventually Maureen became the recipient of a Golden Heart Award from RWA, followed by the publication of three secular romances. Life took some turns after that and she gave up writing for fifteen years, until her faith sent her in a new artistic direction. Soon she won a Noble Theme Award from American Christian Fiction Writers (now the Genesis), and a contract followed a year or so later for her Inspirational historical fiction Pieces of Silver, (nominated for a Christy in 2007).
