Author Information

Lois Gladys Leppard
As a young child, Lois was fascinated by the stories her father read to her from Grimm's Fairy Tales. When she wondered where the books came from, he patiently explained the writing and publishing processes to her and encouraged her to begin writing stories of her own.
Lois began her first Mandie story when she was only eleven years old! She was particularly inspired by the things her mother told her about her own orphaned childhood. But eventually the manuscript was tucked away in a drawer and forgotten.

Lois went on to attend Furman University, University of Maryland Extension in Libya, North Africa, and studied music for several years in New York City where she and her sister sang professionally. Later, Lois spent several years as a Federal Civil Service employee in various countries around the world.

Some years ago, Lois was prompted to pull that old manuscript out and began to work on Mandie's story—of her childhood in the South at the turn of the century and her Cherokee heritage. Bethany House Publishers recognized the story's potential for young readers—exciting adventures in a historical setting from a Christian perspective. Now the MANDIE BOOKS series have sales nearing six million copies!

Lois writes from her home in South Carolina. Enthusiastic young fans fill her mailbox with their insightful responses to her stories.
