Meet the Author

Helen Ketteman's writing did not go the way she expected at first. "When I first started writing," she says, "I thought my stories were wonderful and would sell right away. They didn't. I got rejections for three and a half years. I had a lot to learn. But I finally did learn because I kept trying."
