Kaye Pepin has lived and worked all over the world (that’s what happens when you marry a soldier). She currently lives in Cookeville, Tennessee, with her family and three dogs Caesar, Brutus, and Cleo. She graduated from Harding University with a Bachelor’s Degree in math many moons ago and a Master’s Degree in English from Tennessee Technological University. She has been teaching off and on since 1982 in both private Christian schools and the public school system, served in the United States Army as a Russian linguist, and homeschooled her sons (now grown). She is an active member of Collegeside Church of Christ in Cookeville, and teaches the Sunday morning ladies' class. She spends most of her free time writing, reading, and taking weekend trips to places off the beaten path.
