With seven local artists here at The Gift Gallery, we have six that will be here to meet and greet you. With tales that vary from true life, inspiration, triumph, addiction, death, pirates, to bigfoot, you’ll be excited to meet the authors behind the stories. Come in today to get your book and be ready to meet these amazing authors.

Karen Strand and her husband Paul Strand are both authors. While Karen tells a true life story of her son and his battle with insanity and evil in “Escape From The Fowler’s Snare, her husband tells a story of his grandfather and his childhood across the Pacific Northwest in “When Grandpa was a Kid”.

Barbara Andreason tells a story of a young boy kidnapped and forced to serve an evil pirate during the great plague of 1665 in “The Final Port”. Barbara has written three books on family genealogy, articles for the DAR and genealogy newsletters. Barbara has given lectures on Benjamin Franklin, Benedict Arnold, Lucretia Coffin Mott and Nantucket to various organizations.

B.J. Roberts writes of her encounters with Bigfoot, both a male and a female on her land, The Havens Ranch. She also tells of others’ encounters with Bigfoot, Native American encounters and a battle. B.J. built a large statue of Bigfoot at north-fork survivors at Mount St. Helens. You can read all her adventures in “Bigfoot Face to Face”.

Kurtis Bissell writes of a man who finds himself in the midst of a new viral outbreak, his journey through this harsh new world in hopes of finding somewhere the infection has not reached in “Trials, Death and the Undead”.

Barbara Boswell describes how God can take ordinary life situations and devastating health concerns and use them for His extraordinary purposes. Her books are a combination of humor, scripture, and thought-provoking true stories. Barbara works at her local church as a secretary, she is married, has a son and lives in a small town in Washington state. Barbara is also a breast cancer survivor. She spent many years running from God, and discovered when she stopped running that God had been there all along, never abandoning her. Her two books at The Gift Gallery are “Every Time I Turn Around, I Catch A Glimpse of God!” and “Every Time I Turn Around, I Bump Into God”
