It’s a natural for Gloria Zachgo to write stories with Kansas settings. She grew up on a farm in Lincoln County, where she attended one of the last one-room schoolhouses in the country. After graduating from Brown Mackie Business School, she married her high school sweetheart.
Living out of state for several years, Gloria and her husband moved back to their Kansas roots. While their children were young, she ran a small business out of their home. It was when her children left the nest, that she pursued a lifelong dream and took various art lessons.

Thanks for asking, Chris.

Several people have asked me to write the sequel for Never Waste Tears. So, I'm happy to say I'm working on it.

As far as when it will be published--I'd love to tell you it will be soon--but I've only started, and unfortunately, I'm like the chef that keeps sampling to see if he has the right ingredients.

I know where I want to go, but my characters don't always follow my direction. They often veer off my chosen path and take me on a journey I don't expect. It's why I have a passion for writing. It's also why I'm painfully slow at the task. (less)

When I was a child, I lived in the area that I wrote about in Never Waste Tears. I re-visited that area when I wrote the book. But if I could travel back in time I know I would see a different landscape - without the trees and buildings that are there today. Even the creek where Carl, Hannah, Nathan, Becca, and Sarah lived was straightened by my own grandfather. (less)
