Deanna Stalnaker 4

Deanna (D.L.) Stalnaker is the author of all the following books on this page. She has been writing since 2012 following her retirement from over 25 years of being a registered nurse. Her writing reflects her love of God and family and although her stories are primarily drama, there is a little romance thrown in all from a Christian worldview. Most of her books contains some kind of medical issues (it’s hard to take the nurse out of someone after so many years). Her children’s books are all about cats, but with living with them most her life (she currently has 18 running around) it’s easy to see where she gets her inspiration. Her newest love is butterflies, so it has become her theme in all her blog pages on this website. They represent innocence, beauty, change, and rebirth and are a fitting symbol for her devotionals.
