Bio of Terri Reed:

At an early age Terri Reed discovered the wonderful world of fiction and declared she would one day write a book. Now she is fulfilling that dream and enjoys writing for Steeple Hill. She is an active member of both Romance Writers of America and American Christian Fiction Writers. She resides in the Pacific Northwest with her college-sweetheart husband, two wonderful children, and an array of critters. When not writing, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends, gardening and playing tennis.

Blurb for Treasure Creek Dad
What’s a Father to Do?
Single father Jake Rodger’s daughter isn’t happy about moving to tiny Treasure Creek Alaska. So the former big city businessman trades his suits for hiking boots and he books a father-daughter wilderness tour to acclimate her. But Veronica isn’t buying it. Perhaps guide Casey Donner is just the person to help the girl appreciate the Klondike state’s natural beauty. But could tomboy Casey, in her ponytail and cargo pants, also be what this city boy needs for a lifetime of love?

Bio of Tammy Barley:

Tammy Barley’s roots run deep and wide across the United States. With Cherokee heritage and such ancestors as James Butler “Wild Bill” Hickok, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and Henry David Thoreau, she essentially inherited her literary vocation and her preferred setting: the Wild West. An avid equestrian, Tammy has ridden horseback over western mountains on journeys up to ten days long.

Tammy’s first book in The Sierra Chronicles, Love’s Rescue, won second place in the Golden Rose Contest, inspirational romance category, went into its second printing only five weeks after it was released, and landed on’s best-selling historical fiction list, at number eleven. Book two, Hope’s Promise, is already receiving rave reader comments and five-star reviews.

In addition to writing, Tammy judges a number of top writing contests and works fulltime as an editor.

Blurb for Hope’s Promise:

Jake Bennett is finally wed to the love of his life, Jessica Hale-but he isn’t convinced she won’t leave him. Life is a constant struggle for the Bennetts as they battle drought and live in fear of raids on Southerners, and he is not sure that Jess knew what she was getting herself into when she married him. Jess, however, despairs for another reason-she is unable to conceive a child. While trying to prove their unconditional love for each other, the Bennetts are devastated to discover that a former friend of Jess’s parents, Miriam Van Dorn, isn’t who they thought she was. Together, they must stand in faith through betrayal, danger, and barrenness, trusting that God will reward their hopes for a better future.
