Jennifer Labadie Fromke

Born and raised in Michigan, Jennifer Labadie Fromke fell in love with stories years before she knew what it meant to fall in love. She literally found a hole in the wall in the basement of her house, climbed in with a pile of books and immersed herself in stories under a naked light bulb for hours at a time.

This love affair grew into an addiction, which eventually caused a shift in plans from pre-medical student to Literature major at Wheaton College. Later, reading aloud to her children became her favorite pastime and now all three kids have developed a tendency toward disappearing somewhere with a good book.

Writing flowed naturally out of Jennifer's love for story. She says: "Living a life filled with stories teaches us the importance of our own story. More than mere entertainment, it gives us insight about people, explores emotion, geographical locations, and history. Story can show us what we never want to become, and it helps us dream of all that might be possible." Her first novel, A Familiar Shore, won the 2010 ACFW Genesis award for Women's Fiction. It was released in March, 2012 from Write Integrity Press.

Jennifer writes from Concord, NC where she lives with her husband of 20 years, their three children, and a high-anxiety dog. They travel to their favorite lake in Michigan every summer, a place that inspires their stories and paints upon their souls.

Don't miss Jennifer as she presents:
