Looking back after I’ve been blessed as a multi-award-winning author of over sixty novels and four million books sold, I realize I was a slow starter. When I was in the third grade, my teacher wrote a prophetic message on my report card, “Gail is an excellent writer.” Today I realize she recognized a talent that took me fifty years to recognize.
Before writing, I taught English and public speaking at a local high school and later became a licensed counselor. Leaving the public school system, I became an adjunct instructor at Davenport University where I taught composition, business English and public speaking. When my writing career took off, I left formal teaching and now teach workshops across the United States as well as present keynote addresses at women’s events in churches, civic organizations and libraries.
Born and raised in Michigan, I live with my husband, Bob, who is my greatest fan and the best proofreader in the state. Second to writing, I enjoy music, especially singing as a soloist and choir member. A wonderful achievement is being a member of the renown chorale, Detroit Lutheran Singers, where we perform a series of concerts three or four times a year. And for years I played handbells, since my husband was the director of the JuBELLation Ringers.
I am a founder of American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW) which began on February 2000 with six female romance writers. Today we are an organization with more than 2600 members and are known for the best Christian fiction writers conference in the United States.
Writing is my ministry. From reader letters, I have learned that Christian stories touch the hearts of readers and make a difference in their lives. I am blessed to be among other Christian writers around the world. Writing romance and romantic suspense combines elements I love—romance, suspense, and my love for the Lord.
“These three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love.” 1 Cor. 13:13
