Tricia Gardella

Tricia Gardella’s books are mostly influenced by the ranch life she stepped into sixty years ago. She writes children’s books about ranch animals, ranch routines, and ranch relationships, though occasionally getting side-tracked to explore the myriad other sides of life. She has tried it all, and almost mastered some: canning, cooking, knitting and other fiber arts, rug-making, gardening, and various business ventures. But writing is her happiest of places and she is thrilled to be back after a twenty-year sabbatical. She has a BA in Ancient History and Classical Archaeology, three children, seven grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren, all giving her much food for thought. She lives with two self-centered cats in Central California. The Quest is her only attempt at writing for adults.
