When I Was Just a Kid...Jane Orcutt

Jane Orcutt...from here to eternity

(Words from Jane Orcutt's web site)

Award-winning Christian author Jane Orcutt was born on January 25th, 1960, in Fort Worth, Texas with a serious heart defect. She faced surgeries and long recoveries from the age of five. But these solitary times only strengthened Jane’s love for reading, and her dream of one day becoming a writer.

Jane achieved that dream with style, not only as a popular Christian novelist with fourteen published books to her credit, but also through her mentorship of many young writers.

On Sunday, March 18, 2007, after a long battle with acute myeloid leukemia, Jane stepped into the arms of her Savior. She now rests safely in His arms, while her powerful legacy lives on through her family and through her books. You can read a sample of the last book she published, All the Tea in China, here. Be sure to get your own copy in Christian bookstores now.

This is wonderful. I'm so glad you did this. I didn't know Jane, but I sure wish I did. Bless you for all you're doing for other writers.
