Glynis is an award-winning writer and children’s author and cannot imagine a world without little people to inspire and bless her. She has lived in Drayton with her husband, for 30 years. Glynis got her first break and her real start in writing professionally writing a weekly column – Sugar and Spice – in the Drayton Community News. She wrote that column for over 11 years. She was a private tutor for over 18 years but recently had to give that up because she needed her classroom converted to a ‘granddad’ apartment for her 89 year old father. Glynis misses her students but still manages to surround herself with children at every opportunity. She loves to collect story-fodder from the everyday.
“It’s amazing where and when inspiration comes,” says Glynis. Writing for children is her first love and she also writes devotions, short stories, blog posts and rejoices daily because she is constantly reminded about God’s amazing grace and His unconditional love.

Rose Seiler Scott is the author of “Threaten to Undo Us” which was released in 2015. Rose is also a contributing writer to “Hot Apple Cider with Cinnamon”.
Rose Seiler Scott lives in Surrey, BC with her husband and their two youngest who aren’t really children anymore. Until her daughter was born, she was the lone feminine voice in a crowd of loud and louder, but the older two are married, which nicely evens the male-female ratio when everyone comes to dinner.
She knew when she was about ten she wanted to be a writer, but life being what it is, she sort of forgot for a few years and did stints as a bookkeeper, piano teacher and PAC President at my kids’ school.
Teresa Marie was born in Omaha, Nebraska nine months after my parents were married. My dad said I was probably conceived on their wedding night and that was always very special to him. I have lived in a number of states including Wisconsin, Wyoming, Colorado, Nebraska again, and Washington state where I lived for 29 years and raised my two sons. I now have five grandsons. The Lord gave me a promise years back about my sons when he told me “all your sons shall be taught by the Lord and great shall be the prosperity of your sons”. I guess it is no wonder there have been no girls born yet if the promise was for sons. There are a nice round number of seven sons now.
