I find it amazing that you’ve written from over 40 countries to tell me that you like the books I write and the people who are my characters. I’m delighted and so is my husband Roy!  If you want to know a big secret, some of those characters are amazingly like our Scandinavian relatives!  (Don’t tell them!!!) Because of our family histories, it’s a special pleasure for me to have the Scandinavian Gift Shop in Alexandria, Minnesota sell my books in their store and through their website. The owners, Sandy Sheets and Heidi Bergerson, are heartwarming sisters who have managed the Scandinavian Gift Shop for five years. Heidi’s husband, Chad Bergerson, builds their website and fills online orders. You’ll find that link when you order my books online. When you write please tell Sandy, Heidi, and Chad thanks! for giving me more time to answer your frequent request– please, Lois, write more books!

    Hi Lois, I know of you from Vision of Glory Lutheran Church back in late 70s, early 80s. I think you lived in Wisconsin then? I have your early books that I bought for my children who are now nearing and in their 40s. Keeping them for my grandchildren to read in a few years.
    I live near Alex. So may run into you some day at the Scandinavian shop!

    Mrs. Johnson-
    Please write another series about Libby and Caleb. I want to read more about them and what happens when they get older. You are such a great writer and your books have helped me a lot. I'm going through kinda of a tough time right now, and I just finished the Freedom Seekers. They've been very helpful. Thank you and God bless!

      Thank you, Emily, for wanting to read more about Libby and Caleb. When I'm writing I learn to love my characters and also want to write more. But right now I can't promise because I'm in the midst of doing something else (still a secret!)

      I'm sorry that you've been going through a tough time. I'm very grateful that the Freedom Seekers helped you. I pray the Lord's continuing help as you need it. And I also ask that he gives you Bible verses that you can repeat to yourself. That's BIG for all of us! One of my favorites is Deut. 31:8.

      Love and hugs-- Lois Reply

        There is something for everyone in this collection. English and Armenian speaking kids alike can enjoy these classic stories with a comical twist. The books in Armenian are an excellent read for kids in Armenian School programs. The illustrations are engaging and since the stories are familiar, our kids are more eager to read these in Armenian and reinforce their Armenian speaking and reading skills. Reply

      I bought the enrtie collection of books for my kids, and also for my nephews who live in California. The kids' ages range from 4-10 yrs. old, and all of them enjoy the books. My kids find the books to be funny and fun to read. My husband and I appreciate the creative way that the books reinforce the Armenian language and culture to our kids. Great initiative by the author to capture in story-form what we as Armenian parents have experienced during our youth. As more and more generations of American-Armenians grow farther away from our foreign-born parents' customs and rituals, these books allow us to bring the concepts back and share the funny anecdotes with our children so that they can continue to exist in their repetoire of the Armenian culture.

        Hi my new friend! I'm delighted that you find my books helpful. Are your family roots from near Bogota, Columbia, or from somewhere in Asia? Blessings upon you and your family-- Lois Reply
