Wanda Pyle

Wanda Pyle

Wanda DeHaven Pyle, a late-comer to the field of writing, grew up on a farm in the Flint Hills of Kansas. A frequent writer of stories as a child, she always thought that one day should grow up to become a writer. Unfortunately, life had a way of intervening in best of her plans.

Wanda is descended from a long line of educators going back as far as anhone can remember. It seemed a natural course of her to take at a time when few careers were open to women. Thus, a career in education coincided nicely with marriage and children and allowed her the felibility to be h ome when they were little while still pursuing her love of literature. Retiring after 38 years as a teacher and administrator, Wanda decided to reinvent herself as an author and pursue a dream that had been deferred since childhood.

She lives in Claremont, California with her husband and spends her retirement years writing, traveling and enjoying her twelve grandchildren. She authors a blog entitled School Marms and Cowboys where she records the inspirations, reflections and insights gleaned through her writing.
