Sara Harris To Visit ACFW The Woodlands 6-8-2019!

Sara Harris
Sara is a native West Texan, conservationist, mother of four, certified elementary teacher, and certifiable Gypsy. Sara and family have made their home in places all over the world, from the majestic Oklahoma plains to the eclectic mountains of Italy – collecting inspiration and rescue animals along the way.

From Alaska to the wilds of New Mexico, Sara has piloted small aircraft, counted bats, tracked mountain lions, hiked with black bears, relocated giant Western diamondback rattlesnakes, and fallen in love over and over again with the roads less traveled.
She is married to a man who makes romance novel heroes pale in comparison and together they have six children, three dogs, and two goofy cats. She teaches school in her spare time and helps her husband, Wesley, run his aptly named plumbing business – As You Wish Plumbing. 

Despite a couple of rounds with cancer, Sara’s publication list has grown to include Civil War Romance, Amish Romance, Amish Adventure, anthology pieces, Christian Western, YA Time Travel, Light Horror, Native American Middle Grade Fiction, Children’s Nonfiction, picture books, and even more!
Sara is a member of the Romance Writers of America, is a member and the critique chair for Hearts Through History, and a member of West Houston RWA, Western Fictioneers, the Catholic Writers Guild, and the Transylvanian Society of Dracula along with several nameless groups comprised of local writers who tend to gather occasionally wherever the coffee is the freshest.

ACFW The Woodlands welcomes Jessica Ferguson, July 13

Join ACFW The Woodlands, Texas Chapter as we welcome, Jessica Ferguson on Saturday, July 13, 2019. (This was rescheduled due to flooding rains in May.)

Lupe Tortilla, 19437 I-45, Shenandoah, Texas, 11:00am - 1:00pm

Jessica “Jess” Ferguson is a co-owner/co-editor of Swamp Lily Review, A Journal of Louisiana Literature & Arts. She’s also a staff writer for Southern Writers Magazine.
Jess says one of the best times she had as a writer was working as assistant editor/writer/photographer for The Times of Southwest Louisiana. According to Jess, “It was fun and I learned a lot. If you ever have the opportunity to write for a magazine or newspaper in your city, do it. You’ll see your town and the people around you in a whole new way.”

Her work has appeared in magazines and newspapers in Louisiana and Texas. One of her writing assignments earned her a position with Lamar University’s Continuing Education Department, coordinating writing classes and teaching her own class, Nonfiction Boot Camp. Budget cuts did away with the CE department so she tried her hand at teaching an on-campus course for McNeese University’s Leisure Learning. There she learned the huge difference in teaching online classes and standing before a classroom of live people–talking, talking, talking. She was a much better typist!

Jess really enjoys encouraging other writers and judging writing contests for ACFWRWA, as well as their chapters. She’s the founder of the East Texas Writers Association in her hometown of Longview, Texas, and a past president of Bayou Writers’ Group in Lake Charles, Louisiana. She enjoyed starting a members-only contest for the Bayou Writers group and creating their annual Gator Bites publication, showcasing their work.
