Internationally known author, Grace Augustine, was born in Shelby, Montana and grew up in Cut Bank, Montana (dubbed as The Coldest Spot in the Nation). Her work career has taken her from title and abstracting to administrative assistant church work to co-owning a small town weekly newspaper to her current profession as a floral designer.
Grace thinks of herself as a “Jill” of most trades and is not afraid to learn new things. “If you cannot learn something new each day, there is something wrong,” she says.
The ideas for her Acorn Hills series stem from her growing up years as well as the issues she has had to overcome along the way. “I want to make a difference in the lives of those around me. There is so much negativity in today’s world. It is nice to escape into a world that can carry you away, even just for a little while. And reading can take you anywhere. The story lines in these books relate real issues concerning middle aged people who have gone through difficult situation and turned them into a positive life.”
Augustine was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis ten years ago. Her thoughts on that “It may slow me down, but if I can at all do it, I will. Sitting and feeling sorry for yourself isn’t the answer…living your life with an open, joy-filled heart is.”
