Meet the Author

ABOUT THE AUTHORG. G. Galt's stories are faction––fictional adventures happening in factual locations––ones that didn't happen, but could have. Her illustrated fantasies often take place on the shores of Little Traverse Bay and Lake Charlevoix in Northern Michigan. Others happen in the Northwest and the Northeast where she's been known to ride the rails coast-to-coast rather than fly. The author has also written speeches, and tributes, as well as a commercial copy for brochures, booklets, and packaging. Since junior high school, she has sent award winning poems and letters to the rich and famous––some have replied. One was delivered in the middle of a current history class by special delivery. It was from a sitting president of the United States of America. Another she particularly treasures, is from First Lady Barbara Bush, who commented on their mutual love of the twelve volume 1937 children's books––My Book House. The set, enhanced with beautiful colored illustrations, holds hundreds of stories written by famous authors. She credits the volumes––a gift from her grandmother––as inspiration for the illustrated books she's in the process of creating today. In the future she plans to write children's historical fiction based on her research and recollections. “What children learn,” she says, “in a pleasurable way, is long remembered. ”The author's most recent publications are as follows: (A) The Love Box Series–– Love Boxes: A Love Story from Northern Michigan to Points Beyond, Love Boxes 2: The Vacation, Love Boxes 3: The Twilight Zone, and Love Boxes 4: The Bay View Cottage. (B) The Paradise Trilogy––Paradise: A Love Story from Petoskey to Harbor Springs, Paradise 2: A Love Story from Cross Village to Harbor Springs, Paradise 3: A Love Story from Harbor Springs to Sausalito. Each of these seven books is complete or can be enjoyed sequentially. The stories originate from Galt's love of genealogy, history, music, art, antiques, and old house restoration. She also draws from fond memories of growing up in Northern Michigan and spending summer vacations at the family cottage. For updates, to say hello, or comment, visit the author’s blog at: gigigalt.com. She loves to hear from her readers.

    Refreshing and heart warming!

    Truly a refreshing and heart warming tale set in my favorite vacation spot. Lake Charlevoix. Whether I was familiar with the area or not, I would have been charmed by the story. I couldn’t stop reading it. When I did, I walked a little lighter. Great family read.

    This is a fascinating and delightful story about my favorite area of the country: Northern Michigan. I plan to read
    it to my family before we leave on our summer vacation to Lake Charlevoix. Looking forward to the second
    book in the trilogy. I love the characters, especially Uncle Ted and his niece Fancy.

    This is not only wonderful travel fiction, but an amazing book.

    This is not only wonderful travel fiction, but an amazing book. I have never read an e-book quite like this, or seen so many beautiful photos. It's hard to believe it is free. The photos take me right along with Fancy to all the places she travels in Northern Michigan. The story was for me, as the author hoped, "a trip down memory lane." I am not finished with it yet, but I pick up my i-phone and read it every chance I get. At home, I read it on my lap top in PDF, it looks great. I wrote the author and found out Book 2 and 3 of this Trilogy will be on i-Pad shortly and has been approved for their catalogue. (I'm hoping I'll have my new i-Pad by Mother's Day and can read the others on it.) Many thanks to the author and the publisher. I plan to share the book with my homeschooling friends.

    Interesting

    This story jumps around so much that it rs hard to folow. The storyline is good and the style of writing is easy to read. Just confusing at times.

    Nice pictures. About 200 pages. First person. Different sort of read.

    Not really a true crime mystery but it has the flavor of and reads like one. Relatively short. First person narrative. It was interesting, very light reading. Lots of pictures, which is unusual for adult fiction. My parents moved us to Flint Michagan when I was a child, it is beautiful country. I enjoyed the memories this book brought back.

    Excited!

    This book seems so great. Since I was little I would always go to Charlevoix, Michigan for part of my summer. I just can't wait to read it now!
