About The Author
Just a small-town girl,
livin’ in a lonely world…
I grew up on a dairy farm in the Pacific Northwest. Spent my formative years climbing trees, talking to cows, and perming my hair. Now I live in Montana, where cows still outnumber people. I’m a happy wifey and a mom to the third power (biological, adoptive, and foster).
I write contemporary fiction, and I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember. There was a time, when I was probably ten or so, when I composed a multi-page epic poem for my mom in celebration of Mother’s Day. As I recall, the poem included several verses for each of the four seasons and there was something about a frolicking deer. Anyway, she pretended with all her heart to love that poem and for that I will always be thankful because I don’t think I would be doing this today if she had thrown it in the garbage.
If you’re wondering about the red shoes, my Grandma Julie started it. She gave me my first pair of red All Stars when I was little and I’ve been in love with them ever since. In fact, she gave all my siblings and cousins a pair, as well as my first two children, before she passed away. Now she wears her red shoes in heaven.
Hot Coffee!! WOW! I cannot say enough about Katie Powner’s book. A breath of fresh air. A Flicker of Light is about a family that is learning to let go, the power of healing and learning to live with a family member who was diagnosed with dementia. I wish that Moose Creek, Montana was a real place to visit. The call of the mountains. We will learn through the story that God is always with us even if it does not feel like it, we just need to lean on Him.
I highly recommend A Flicker of Light, grab a few tissues, pull up a rocking chair and dive into a story of forgiveness and redemption. I am eagerly awaiting the next book by the author.
