Event Speakers

Nancy Rue

Inspired by Nancy Drew mysteries as a child, Nancy Rue knew by age 10 she would someday be a writer. While teaching high school English after college, she felt God calling her back to her dream of writing. For 14 years, Nancy was a teacher and a writer—often waking up at 4 AM to write before work! Today, she is a full-time writer who still loves to teach at workshops. Her 123 books include the Lily series, the FaithGirlz Bible and the Mean Girl Makeover Trilogy for kids, as well as twelve adult novels including the award winning Reluctant Prophet and Healing Waters. She now offers a writing mentorship program called From Shadow To Shelf  www.fromshadowtoshelf.com) She and her husband, Jim, live in Tennessee. Visit Nancy’s website at www.nancyrue.com.

Angela Hunt

Christy Award-winner Angela Hunt has written more than 130 works, ranging from picture books to adult novels. Nearly five million copies of her books have sold worldwide. Now that her two children are grown up, she and her husband, a youth pastor, live in Florida with mastiffs, one of which held the distinction of being the second largest canine in America as judged by Regis and Kelly! Angela has loved books all her life. When she’s not writing, Angela teaches at writers’ conferences across the country. For more information about Angela, visit her website at www.angelahuntbooks.com.

Tim Shoemaker

Tim Shoemaker is the author of eleven books and is a popular speaker at conferences and schools around the country.  He has done volunteer work with youth for over twenty-five years—and still loves it.  This love for kids has helped him relate to his reading and listening audience in a unique way.

Code of Silence, book one of his contemporary suspense series, was named in the “Top Ten Crime Novels for Youth” by Booklist.

Tim is passionate about helping kids and adults become true men and women of God.  Tim has an energetic style of teaching that helps make even difficult topics clear. He is all about encouraging and equipping writers to do what they do—better.  If you want to strengthen your fiction, Tim will show you how to do it.

Happily married for over thirty-eight years, Tim has three grown sons and daughter-in-laws, and lives in Rolling Meadows, Illinois.
