Categorization is odious. There is tremendous overlap among genres. These pigeonholes are offered only as a convenience.

I am having a blast reading Lorena McCourtney's Ivy Malone series. It has given me a whole new look at senior adults. If you can imagine Nancy Drew in her sixties and still sleuthing, you've got an idea of Ivy Malone. I've also read the Julesburg series. The main characters were young adults. I wished that there were more than 3 books in the series, since they were really good. McCourney's books all center around the belief that the Lord truly cares about us and display the lives of regular Christian people. The stories illustrate how faith in Jesus makes it possible for ordinary people to get through extraordinarily difficult circumstances.

I'm the author - Lorena McCourtney.
I live in southern Oregon, with my husband Jim. I have one son, two stepdaughters, and a granddaughter. We've lived out in the country for many years and just recently moved to town. Big-time adjustment!

I've been writing for a long time, and my upcoming book (in a new series) is my 39th book. I majored in Agriculture in college, but after a brief stint with a midwestern meat-packing company, I realized I didn't want to spend my life writing about raising hogs and making sausage.
