Winnie’s bio:

Winnie Griggs is a city girl born and raised in Southeast Louisiana’s Cajun Country who grew up to marry a small town farm boy from the piney hills of Northwest Louisiana. Though her Prince Charming (who often wears the guise of a cattle rancher) is more comfortable riding a tractor than a white steed, the two of them have been living out their own happily ever after for 33+ years. During that time they raised four proud-to-call-them-mine children and a too-numerous-to-count assortment of dogs, cats, aquarium fish, hamsters, turtles and 4-H sheep.

With a Bachelor of Science degree in mathematics and a minor in Computer Science, Winnie has held various professional and managerial positions in the electric utility industry since she graduated from college. At the moment, however, she’s actively working on transitioning into a full time writing career.

In addition to her day job and writing career, Winnie has served on the board of a number of writing organizations, coordinated writers’ conferences and contests, served on committees within her church, and is active in several civic organizations – after all, she’s a firm believer in the adage that you reap in proportion to what you sow.

Winnie’s favorite pastimes, besides reading and writing, are cooking, exploring flea markets and pretending the platoon of dust bunnies who have invaded her home will disappear on their own if she just ignores them long enough.
Winnie enjoys hearing from readers. You can contact her at P.O.Box 398, Plain Dealing, LA 71064, or e-mail her at .

Back blurb of Hand-Me-Down Family:

Callie Gray always assumed she would never marry, until she took a leap and became a mail-order bride. But when she arrives in Sweetgum, Texas, she gets the shock of her life. Her husband is dead, and his brother proposes she marry him, for the sake of his orphaned nephew and nieces. Jack Tyler warns her not to hope for a love match—theirs is strictly a convenient marriage. But Callie yearns for a true partnership with the man who has unexpectedly captured her heart. Now she must convince him what he truly needs is a lifetime of love, faith and family—with Callie by his side.
