2. Tracie Peterson

Romance Writers of America has honored Tracie Peterson with The RWA Centennial Award for authoring more than 100 romance novels. Tracie also teaches writing workshops at a variety of conferences on subjects such as inspirational romance and historical research. She and her family live in Montana. Her latest book is the historical romance When You Are Near (Bethany House).

“My writing is a ministry to extend hope and encouragement to those who may otherwise feel forsaken. It’s also a chance to share the Gospel message. There are so many people out there who will not pick up the Bible but will pick up one of my books. I feel a responsibility to share the hope that is within me and pray that the books will draw the reader closer to God.”
