Meet the Author

Loretta Barnes Staley was born and raised in Evanston, Wyoming, a small town in Southwestern Wyoming. She was the sixth child in a family of nine children; all talented in the arts, especially music.

Loretta was writing poems, songs and short stories by the age of twelve.

Throughout a busy life of “ranching”, then, later on, managing a motel that she and her husband purchased, raising three children, and helping with grandchildren, she continued (when she could find time) to “dabble” at writing.

Many of her stories of adventure and mystery were inspired by her own experiences. Others were inspired by the interesting and strange lives of various people she knew as they traveled through her life.

Now most of her time is spent writing and she has been encouraged by her friends and family to seek publication of her work -- some of it recent and some from long ago.

Hoping that a few will read, and perhaps enjoy, some of her stories, she has done just that.

This is just one of the many novels written by this author.

All of her writings are considered “acceptable” for young adult and teen reading.

A note from the editor

Loretta passed away in 2006. Since then her family has continued to publish and promote the stories she loved so much to tell.

Thanks for reading Moms books. We hope you enjoy them all!
