Penny Estelle was born, long ago, in Iowa City, Iowa. Her family up and moved to Mesa, AZ, when she was a toddler, and has remained in Arizona since.
She started writing for children right before retiring, claiming after working so long with children of all ages, she has plenty of material to work with. “I was never a reader as a child or teen and I missed out on so many adventures. I think it’s very important in today’s world to get kids reading and keep them reading.”
Her books for the younger group include a children’s picture book, Have You seen My Tail, a book of magic and fantasy, Hike Up Devil’s Mountain, plus a series of time travel adventures for ages 9 – 13, The Wickware Sagas.
Penny decided to try her hand at writing for the older crowd. She now has a family drama about desertion and addiction, two contemporary romances, a paranormal romance and two historical western romances under her belt. She and her husband also wrote a non fiction short story on their experience living with solar.
Penny Estelle was a school secretary for twenty-one years. After retiring, she and her husband moved to their fifty-four acre ranch in NW Arizona where they live off the grid. Solar and wind is the only source of electricity. “A real adjustment for a city girl, but I love it. At night, the sky is an explosion of stars. It is breathtaking!”
If Penny is not working on stories, she enjoys four-wheeling on unexplored roads, visiting with family (especially her seven grandchildren), and enjoys the occasional visits to the casinos. She also admits her weakness is ice cream, anytime, anywhere!
