ACFW Recap 2


Last week I was in Dallas for ACFW board meetings and conference. It’s always a highlight of my year and was frankly kind of shocking to realize this was my 11th conference. In 2005 the conference was in Nashville. It’s no exaggeration to say that my writing journey was launched there in such a big way. Today I’m still recovering from the laryngitis I brought home with me, so I’m keeping this post simple. It’s all about the people I love and spend time with while I’m at ACFW.

I hope you enjoy seeing some of your favorite Christian fiction writers as well as a few you’ll read someday!


At the Harper Collins Christian Publishing Toast to their authors. I adore Denise Hunter and Rachel Hauck as well as their great books!


Jaime Wright is an author to watch. Her first novella releases soon in a collection with Barbour.


Carrie Stuart Parks is the talented author of a suspense series I really enjoy. In fact I’m talking about her next book next week!


Here are the Alley Cats that were at conference this year: Laurie Tomlinson, Angie Dicken, Mary Vee, me, Pepper Bashem, and Casey Herringshaw.


This girl (Casey Herringshaw) radiates Jesus and is a pure joy to be around.


Becky Philpott is a fiction editor with Zondervan and a sweetheart. I love getting to connect with her.


Some of the Grove girls and pals. Katherine Reay, Kristy Cambron, Katie Ganshert and our friend Cathy West.


The Grove Girl Team. We were missing Beth Vogt and Sarah Ladd. But the rest of us are here along with Casey Herringshaw and Jeane Wynn. These two gals have the vision and help us with the details!


Susan May Warren is a best-selling author with a heart to teach and mentor writers. She is also just an amazing woman. Love her!

Shannon Marchese edited the novella collection Where Treetops Glisten. Sarah Sundin’s novella in that book was a finalist for the Carol Award. It was so fun to enjoy the Gala with my co-author and editor! Two great ladies.

  1. I can honestly say I have never even considered writing a book! But I think if I did it would probably be contemporary, to many detail to worry about getting correct in a historical novel…

    Looks like ACFW would be great fun!
