Meet the Author

"Joy is a perfume you can't pour on others without getting a few drops on yourself." At conferences from Maine to Hawaii, Alaska to the Caribbean and beyond, Kay Rizzo shares her excitement for living God's abundant life. She delivers spiritual insights with a balance of humor, drama, and vulnerability that moves her audience from laughter to tears to conviction.

Former girls' dean, high school and college English teacher, sold her first book in 1985. Since trading in her grade book for a computer keyboard, she's published 41 books and 1000+ articles, including I WILL DIE FREE (endorsed by Amnesty International); ON WINGS OF PRAISE; and the SERENITY INN SERIES. Her latest books include ELIZABETH, AN SDA GIRL SERIES and POPSICLES, BLACK HOLES AND BURNT TOAST, the 2003 devotional for junior age readers.

In her spare time she writes a monthly column for "Winner" magazine, a positive lifestyle journal for preteens. A facilitator for Florence Littauer's West Coast, "Writers' and Speakers' Seminars," Kay served on the 2002 teaching staff at the Glorietta Christian Writers' Conference.

Kay met Richard, her college professor husband, in the school library at Atlantic Union College. Their 42 year romance produced two daughters, two sons-in-laws and two grandsons. Mini-honeymoons to the coast, kicking back with the grandbabies, making music with family and friends, reading a good book and traveling to far-away places are the Rizzos' greatest loves.
