Connie M. Huddleston
As a child, Connie Huddleston loved history and dreamed about her future as an award-winning author. However, she got sidetracked and became an Army wife, a mother, an elementary school teacher, an archaeologist, and an historic preservation consultant, all before publishing her first book! Now in 2017, she has published 10 volumes, all dealing with her first passion (don’t tell her husband and children) — our nation’s past. She’s even won her first book award.
While four are written for children under the name, C.M. Huddleston, Connie’s other works are histories for adults on a variety of subjects. Currently she is researching and writing about President Theodore Roosevelt’s ancestors and planning Greg's Fourth Adventure in Time! Time travel occupies much of her thoughts as there is so much to consider—like can dogs time travel?
She resides in a log cabin near Crab Orchard, Kentucky, with her husband, a retired Army officer, and an Australian Shepherd named Katie (who often time travels to far off meadows to chase deer). She enjoys the quiet of rural Kentucky, except when Katie barks at deer, turkeys, and of course, the UPS truck!
In 2016, Connie won her first Gold Medal for Greg's First Adventure in Time. In 2017, she won again for Greg's Second Adventure in Time. Both Literary Classics gold medals now hang proudly in her office as she writes Greg's Fourth Adventure in Time. You can watch the 2017 awards ceremony at the link below. Or watch Connie read from Greg's First at the very windy 2016 Vegas Valley Book Festival.
