Janet Dean’s bio:

Janet Dean grew up in a family who cherished the past and had a strong creative streak. Her father recounted fascinating stories, like his father before him. The tales they told instilled in Janet a love of history and the desire to write. She married her college sweetheart and taught first grade before leaving to rear two daughters, but Janet never lost interest in American history and the accounts of strong men and women of faith who built this country. With her daughters grown, she eagerly turned to Inspirational historical romance. Today Janet enjoys spinning stories for Steeple Hill Love Inspired Historical. When she isn’t writing, Janet stamps greeting cards, plays golf and is never without a book to read. The Deans love to travel and spend time with family.

Courting the Doctor’s Daughter‘s blurb:

An Unexpected Match
A widow with three boys to raise, Mary Graves has no time for peddlers of phony medicine. She’s a dedicated healer working alongside her doctor father. When a handsome stranger blows into town with his “elixir of health” and asks questions about her newly adopted son, Mary’s determined to uncover the truth behind all his claims.

Once the reckless heir to a Boston fortune, Dr. Luke Jacobs travels the country with his herbal medicine while searching for his long-lost son. After meeting the feisty doctor’s daughter and her youngest boy, Luke has found what he’s been looking for at last. But can he convince her to let him into her home, her family—and her heart?

Audrey Hebbert’s bio:

Author of many published articles, devotionals and short stories, Audrey Hebbert published her first novel, Green Light Red Light, in November 2007. Her second manuscript, Motocross Mania, a tweener novel, is currently in the marketing process.

Hebbert has been a published freelance writer for forty years—because she had no choice— she had to write. The former columnist, teacher, and business owner draws material for novels, children’s stories, short stories, devotionals and nonfiction articles from her broad base of experience. She is a native Nebraskan, having grown up in the Sandhills.

Green Light Red Light‘s blurb:

Cultures collide in Green Light Red Light, when a teenager and her mentor leave the U.S. for a month of green light moments, humor and adventure in China. They travel under the guise of volunteer English teachers, but their real mission is evangelism. Monica returns for her fifteenth summer to Chinese universities, but sixteen-year-old Erika trades hamburgers, cell phones and the company of her twin brother for unusual foods and the reality of living in a Communist country. They get lost in The Forbidden City, they climb the Great wall and enjoy visiting many local sites. They visit a government church but never an underground one, because they would be followed and local people would go to prison. The beautiful redhead meets unforgiveness head on as her world view is first rocked and then obliterated and a new vision rises from the dust of China.
