Annette M. Irby has been writing since her teen years when she sat pounding out stories on a vintage typewriter just for fun. Since then, she's joined Christian writing groups and launched blogs so she could share the joy of writing. She likes to say she's addicted to color as flowers and seascapes inspire her. She reads books for review and for her work as an editor. In her off hours, she enjoys gardening, photography, and music. She lives with her husband and family in the Pacific Northwest.
