Popular author signs books here Saturday

Shelley Shepard Gray, a popular author of more than 55 books, meets Phyllis Gossel (center) and Donna Englehart (right) during an hour-long talk and book signing at the Ada Public Library on Saturday morning.

The author told how she began writing, the work involved in producing so many books, and how much fun writing is to her.

With a laugh she said, "I get paid for making making things up." Most of her books are inspirational novels about Amish women (she is not Amish), but she has also tried her hand at historical novels, romance books, and westerns.

She is now researching Civil War life because that period of time will be the setting for a new work.
