About Gayle: “I have been in love with story all my life,” says Gayle Roper, the award winning author of more than forty-five books. “Give me a story with strong characters and a captivating plot, and I’m one happy reader. Or writer.”

Gayle’s novel Autumn Dreams won the prestigious Romance Writers of America’s RITA Award for Best Inspirational Romance.  Both Caught Redhanded and Summer Shadows were Carol Award winners and Summer Shadows won the Inspirational Readers Choice Contest. Gayle has been a Christy finalist three times for her novels Spring Rain, Summer Shadows and Winter Winds and has won the Holt Medallion three times for The Decision, Caught in a Bind, and Autumn Dreams.  The Decision won the Reviewers Choice Award, and she has received the Lifetime Achievement Award from Romantic Times Book Report.

Of her title Fatal Deduction (Multnomah), Publishers Weekly states, “Roper’s dialogue and character development are spot-on, which is no small feat, considering that Libby’s world is peopled by everyone from elderly patricians to two-bit gangsters…This novel is a pleasure from start to finish.”

For her work in training Christian writers Gayle has won special recognition from Mount Hermon Christian Writers Conference, St. Davids CWC, Florida CWC, and Greater Philadelphia CWC.  She directed the St. Davids conference for five years and Sandy Cove conference for six.  She served as writer in residence with Christian Leaders, Authors and Speakers Services (CLASS) for several years.

About A Rose Revealed: Book 3 in The Amish Farm Trilogy – Rose Martin became a nurse because she wanted to help people in pain. And she has come to realize that part of being a nurse means encountering death. But death by natural causes….not by murder.

So when cancer-stricken Sophie Hostetter is murdered, Rose begins asking questions. Soon she’s drawn into a maze of family secrets that endanger her own life.

Her growing attraction to Amish-raised Jake Zook further complicates her life. His resentment toward her is puzzling—after all, she helped save his life. Why will he not allow her to share that life now?
