Margery Kisby Warder is a Speaker, Freelance Writer, Columnist, Bible Teacher-Core Leader, and Christian Fiction Author of "Leaves That Did Not Wither~Finding Goodness and Mercy in a World of Shattered Dreams" ~ an Historical Fiction in the American Civil War era of 1830-1880, based upon research into the times and lives of Esther Copsey and Emanuel Kisbey.

The Author

 

While living in Iowa, and turning 60 years young, Margery Kisby Warder cut her excuses for putting off writing by quitting her best paying job. She joined Christian Writers Guild and began having her articles featured in local newspapers. Margery then started writing her first historical fiction novel called "Leaves That Did Not Wither"...

Leaves That Do Not Wither

"Leaves That Did Not Wither" ~ Nineteenth century England and America provided ample opportunities to test one's character and faith. Affluence and deceit put Esther and Emanuel into a carriage headed for London. They step out, grateful to go their separate ways. Still, Aunt Emma notices something about Emanuel that might be worth remembering. Foes threaten life regardless of where it's lived, but foes waiting for Esther and Emanuel in Canning Town seem to have bigger clubs. Dare the couple cross the Atlantic to join families in America? 1858 becomes the eve of America's Civil War...



The Writer

 

Margery Kisby Warder's earliest writing was on wallpaper in her parents' living-room. That creative work failed to impress others, so she's gradually found more appropriate outlets for her passion for writing and storytelling. When Margery held her great-grandparents' Civil War letters in her hands, she knew she had to research their lives.

                                        

While Ezra 7:10 guides her spiritual life, instructing her to study God’s Word, apply it in her own life, and then teach it to others, Margery brings Biblical insights and humor to her writing. Her writing motto is "Truth & Humor, Even in Fiction"...
