Bobbie J. McLaren was born in South Florida in the 1950’s, in Northern Palm Beach County. She graduated from Palm Beach Gardens High School although much to the surprise of many, in 1972. Always writing something, whether poetry, short stories or gospel music, she has always had a need to create. Now living in North East Alabama atop Lookout Mountain, she is involved with writing Vacation Bible School programs for her church, and working with Drama’s. Learning to paint and to sketch in addition to full time employment keeps this author busy. She shares her home with two cats and her life with her family that lives all around her in the Fort Payne area.
