About the author (2010)



For Mae Nunn, that old country song really sums up the way she feels about her home state of Texas. She grew up in Houston, attended Kilgore College, where she was a member of the famed Kilgore Rangerettes, and then completed her communications degree at the University of Texas in Austin. She was content to spend her life in the Lone Star State.But God had other plans. In 1989, Mae met a transplanted Englishman living in Atlanta and she hung up her spurs to become a Southern belle. Today she and her husband make their home with their two children (a daughter, 17, and a son, 27) on a plantation in Georgia. Okay, maybe it's not a plantation, but it's a lot of yard to mow!

Mae has been with a major air express company for 25 years, currently serving as a regional customer service manager. She began writing four years ago with a laptop on her bathroom vanity counter. When her husband realized Mae's obsession to be published wasn't going to pass, he built her a computer workstation in a guest room closet. A move from the bathroom to a closet might not seem like much of an improvement, but it was just what she needed to finish her first manuscript and get it submitted.

Mae had one rule--not to write anything that would offend her mother or her daughter. Once again God interceded because He wanted Mae's stories to be pleasing in His sight. So she withdrew a secular line submission, rewrote it for the inspirational market and promptly sold the work to the Love Inspired series. When asked how she felt about being part of the Steeple Hill family, Mae summed up her response with one word, "Yeeeee-haw!"
