BIO

   Carla J. Underwood was born in Indiana and grew up in a small town in the northwest corner of the state. She learned both the challenges and the rewards of living in a small community. 

   She and her husband now live in a quaint Montana town not far from the university where they met. 

   The author’s knowledge of small-town life is woven throughout her 1950s series about Willowdale, Indiana—Mrs. Ivey’s Café, A Dog’s Life, and A Granddaughter’s Promise. She also applied that knowledge to the first book in her contemporary family fiction series about the Ivey family—The General Store Legacy.
