Gloria is in service to Christ through her writing, teaching, editing, and speaking gifts.
She is a member of Emmanuel Christian Church, a non-denominational Body of believers whose
creed is "In essentials, unity; in opinion, liberty; in all things, love."
Raised in a Christian home, Gloria grew up on Bible stories and God's truths,
but it wasn't until November of 1991 that she gave up her own way and completely submitted
to God's sovereignty. Since then, she has continued to seek God's truths, guidance, and will for all areas of her life.
Gloria grew up on a small farm in western Pennsylvania with two brothers, one sister, happily
married parents, a pony, and a herd of Toggenburg goats. She graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree
in English from the University of Dallas in Irving, Texas in 1989. She returned home to seek
the writing career she'd always dreamed of since her early teens.
In October, 1997, her first Christian romance novel was published.
She married Scott Peterman in March, 1998, and continues to write from their home in Hadley, PA.
