Here’s some information about Gail Gritts
Gail grew up deep in the heart of the Ozarks where she had a happy childhood full of adventure and enjoyed hearing her grandparents recount family history and shenanigans.
Life led her to England where she and her husband Tom raised their own family of five. While living abroad, they created a vibrant and happy home maintaining family ties as they shared tales of life on the farm and the love of grandparents with their children.
Today, though she still lives in England, she relishes the opportunity to keep the tradition of storytelling, including the mishaps and adventures of Reba and Katherine, with her thirteen grandchildren.
Gail has been a freelance writer for many years writing magazine articles and devotional materials. Messy Hair Game is the first in a series of stories about Reba and Katherine. The next story, Grandpa’s Gift, will come out this summer.

More about Tabitha Bell
Reading was my favorite thing to do my entire life. Sherlock Holmes, the Boxcar Children, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, I read anything I could get my paws on as a child. I’m pretty sure I read nearly every book in my local library. (In fact, by the time I was 12 the librarian put a sticker on my library card that said “never expires”.) But most of all I loved books that captured my imagination and kept me guessing.
My goal is to help a new generation of kids and adults discover the same love of books and imagination that I have. You’re never too old for a good book, and you’re never too old for your teddy bear. Please feel free to give me your honest feedback, there is always room to improve!
