Margery Kisby Warder has been writing ever since she got a hold on a pencil! Her first script was on her parents’ living room wall, so that didn’t get the reviews she was hoping for, but her dad was a storyteller and her mom loved to write, too, so it was not traumatic. Besides, she grew up in the security of a loving home, so the corrections she received in life were ‘measured’, not angry.
Margery’s actual writing “career” adapted to her first passion for the Lord and for the blessings He granted in a husband and family. Often her creativity helped create materials for use in her husband’s ministry and her involvement in both the church and community wherever they lived.
However, when she turned sixty, she quit her best-paying job and devoted time to writing. She was hired to write columns and features for two newspapers and began work on her novel, “Leaves That Did Not Wither”. “Leaves…” follows Esther from Victorian England to rural Michigan in time for the Civil War, into which her husband enlists. A sequel is in nearly finished form.
Now, in time for Christmas, Margery has written short stories and other materials to help enrich the celebration of Christmas. She hopes none of her writing ever wastes her time, or the time her readers spend on it. Enjoy!
