Noelle Carle grew up in a large family in Maine, a familiar setting to her readers. Her journeys with her pastor husband and family have included time in a fishing village in Nova Scotia, in the suburbs of Rhode Island, Massachusetts and New Hampshire, in the breathtaking countryside of New Zealand, and now back home in Maine. She loves to write stories of people realizing the love of God and seeing him work through the sometimes painful, dark periods that we all experience. Her role as a pastor's wife for over twenty-five years has given her insight into the bleakness of life without Christ, and the difference that his grace makes to those who accept him. She also writes devotionals, Bible studies and teaching materials. She is a sometimes poet who finds her muse beside the waters of Big Lake, Maine. Noelle has three children,four grandchildren, and a grand cat who thinks the world revolves around him.
