Margaret Brownley's Bio:

Margaret Brownley considers her writing a living memorial to the loved ones she has lost through the years. Grieving God’s Way is a gift to her son, Kevin, who died seven years ago.

Margaret is a member of the Association for Death Education and Counseling, and she is the founder of her church’s Bereavement Care and Grief Center. She is also a contributing editor of Bereavement magazine, which publishes columns from her book. Margaret has taught creative writing at the Learning Tree University for eight years, and is much in demand as a speaker. She is presently an editorial associate for Writer’s Digest.

Margaret started her career writing inspirational nonfiction and has published more than four hundred articles in such national magazines as Working Mother, Modern Bride, Westways, Instructor, Woman’s Day, and McCalls. Her inspirational works, similar in style to the comforts in Grieving God’s Way, have appeared in many devotional books including:

    • Saying Goodbye When You Don’t Want To (A book for grieving Teens, published by Vine Books)

    • A Moment a Day, Still Moments, and Songs From the Heart (Regal Books)

    • The Walker Within (A first person account of how the author walked her way through grief, published by Lyons Press)

She wrote several inspirational booklets on social issues for Community Intervention, some of which have been in print for years and are on several family “recommended reading” lists.

In addition to her nonfiction experience, Margaret is also the author of twenty-two novels written for Penguin, St. Martin’s Press, Harlequin, and Time Warner. Her books have appeared on Waldenbooks, B. Dalton, and Ingram’s bestseller lists. Her work appeared in an anthology that made the USA Today bestseller list and was picked up by Doubleday Book Club.
