Naomi Musch was born and raised in central Wisconsin and now makes her home in Wisconsin's pristine northwoods, where she and husband Jeff live as epically as God allows on a ramshackle farm near their five young adults and three grand-children. Amidst it, she writes about imperfect people who are finding hope and faith to overcome their struggles, whether the story venue is rich in American history, or along more contemporary lines. Empire in Pine her three-book historical fiction series from Desert Breeze Publishing (Book One, The Green Veil; Book Two, The Red Fury; Book Three, The Black Rose) is a generational family saga of adventure and romance in 1800s Wisconsin. She has two contemporary works to her credit, Heart Not Taken (Black Lyon Publishing) and Paint Me Althena (Desert Breeze Publishing, coming August 2013).
Central to her stories is the belief that God blesses messes, and He delights in turning lives around. For that same reason, besides her fiction writing, Naomi spent five years on the editorial board of the EPA award-winning, Midwestern Christian newspaper, Living Stones News, writing true accounts of changed lives. While pursuing her fiction-writing endeavors, she spent a year as an editor with Port Yonder Press. She continues to enjoy writing for magazines and other non-fiction venues that encourage homeschooling families and young writers.
Besides writing, Naomi enjoys encouraging homeschoolers, gardening, taking walks in the woods, a little basketball, and fellowshipping with friends. She invites readers to say hello and to look her up on Facebook (Naomi Musch - Author) and Twitter (NMusch).
