COLLEEN L. REECE writes under the pen name CONNIE LORAINE and is one of Heartsongs most popular authors. Colleen learned to read beneath the rays of a kerosene lamp. The kitchen, dining room, and her bedroom in her home near the small logging town of Darrington, Washington, were once a one-room schoolhouse where her mother taught all eight grades!
An abundance of love for God outweighed the lack of electricity or running water and provided the basis for many of Colleens 140+ books.Her rigid refuse to compromise stance has helped sell more than 6 million copies that help spread the good news of repentance, forgiveness, and salvation through Christ. Colleen helped launch Barbour Publishings Romance Reader flip books, the American Adventure series, and her own Juli Scott Super Sleuth Christian teen mystery series.
In 1998 Colleen was inducted into the HeartSong Hall of Fame in recognition for her contribution to Heartsongs success.
