MEET THE AUTHOR
Hope Gibbs grew up in rural Scottsville, Kentucky. As the daughter of an English teacher, she was raised to value the importance of good storytelling from an early age. Today, she’s an avid reader of women’s fiction. Drawn to multi-generational family sagas, relationship issues, and the complexities of being a woman, she translates those themes into her own writing.
Hope has a bachelor’s degree from Western Kentucky University in communications and marketing. Currently, she lives outside of Nashville, Tennessee, with her husband, five children, and her persnickety Shih Tzu, Harley. When she’s not on the sidelines cheering on her family during their football, basketball, soccer, or lacrosse games, she’s on the tennis court pursuing her own athletic dreams. In her downtime, she loves pouring through old church cookbooks, especially the ones from her hometown, singing karaoke at every opportunity, curling up on her favorite chair with a book, and playing board games, especially Trivial Pursuit if she can find someone up to the task. Where The Grass Grows Blue is her first novel.
Hope is a member of the Women's Fiction Writers Association.
