Gail Howitt and illustrator Suzanne Wright, for the book Grandpa in the Grass

Inspired by her High School literature teacher who introduced her to Flannery O’Connor, Gail Howitt began a life-long love affair with the Short Story genre.  She was raised in Hanover Park, Illinois and received a B.A. from Illinois State University.  Married to her husband Doug for 26 years, they and their four adult children live in Glendale Arizona.  An educator with 25 years experience, she currently teaches Western Civilization at Trinity Classical Academy.  She loves her church, King of Kings PCA, where her husband serves as an elder and where they are involved in various ministries together.

Her passion for fiction and the unique way it communicates truth fuels her reading, writing and teaching endeavors.


Judith DuCharme for her story, LeGory’s Glory or I Want a Water Buffalo for Christmas
