Danni and her husband, Gramps
Danni McGriffith is the author of Agnes Campbell’s Hat–a novel for middle grade and young adult readers–as well as The Cedar Tree, Wailing Woman Creek, and Runs Alone Girl, the first three books in the Love Is Not Enough series set in western Colorado about two ranching families. She blends a lifetime of experience with farm and ranch life, humor, and her Christian worldview into the stories she writes. Presently, she is working on the fourth book in the Love Is Not Enough series.
Danni home-schooled her three sons for sixteen years then finally graduated the last one and retired from that endeavor. After that, she started writing in earnest, unwilling to waste all those years of english classes. Most of what she writes is politically incorrect, but realistic, Christian fiction, incorporating her lifelong love of horses, farming, ranching, and the Lord Jesus. She generally writes and blogs with her tongue firmly in her cheek because her foot is taking up the rest of the space in her mouth.
Danni and Gramps have been married 36+ years. They have three grown and married sons and eight grandkids featured on the blog from time to time–Kevman, Blondie, Roper, Eisnstein, Git’R’Done, Ladybug, Tater, and the newest member, Lad, born this spring and cute as a bug’s ear.
Danni and Gramps grow wheat and forage for cattle on about 1200 acres in southwestern Oklahoma. They run a cow-calf operation with 100+ mama cows, mostly black angus. McGriffith farms are scattered here and there across a ten-mile radius, but at the home place, Danni manages to grow a few veggies and keeps her chickens in an old school bus–one of Gramps’
harebrained great ideas. She also keeps a rotating menagerie of cats, dogs, ducks, sheep, goats, orphan calves, and a horse or two–at present the grandkids’ Shetland pony, Frisco, and her perfect granny-horse mare, Sis, who is too fat and lazy to buck. (Danni hopes.)
