- Born: in Redwood City, The United States.
- Description: Multi-award-winning author for over 30 years, Rowena Portch is best known for her Spirian Saga, a nine-book series. In journalism, she has written numerous articles for distinguished publications, such as LiveStrong, Public Slate, Airbrush Magazine, Northwest Travel, and Guardian Liberty Voice. Her spiritual commitment to God is foremost in her life, but her heart belongs to her husband Gregg and guide-dog Skye-Bear. She has earned a Bachelors degree in business management and a Masters in computer sciences. She is only 16 credits shy of earning her Doctorate in natural medicine. Portch worked as a senior technical editor for Microsoft and Osborne/McGraw-Hill. Other professionals see her as an intelligent woman who learns quickly and follows through with commitments. Her true distinction, however, is her drive for learning. Her family and friends call her a perpetual student who hates wearing shoes.
