About the Author:

Shelby Wagner was born in an old-fashioned country home in northeast Arkansas, the same house in which her mother had been born. She was raised in a loving Christian home with two siblings. Her family moved to Michigan when she was nine.

She started piano lessons when she was twelve and became church organist at sixteen and can still be found at the church keyboard or directing the church choir.

She has a daughter and a son and one grandson. She is a retired music teacher, designs websites for fun, and is now a published author.

Having lost her husband of fifty years to heart failure and pneumonia and her mother six months later, Shelby is no stranger to grief.

“Learning to Dance in the Rain” is the story of her journey through grief, self-discovery and renewal. She is now living a new, satisfying and fulfilling new, single lifestyle.

Dealing with the loss of someone you love is one of life’s most difficult events, and Shelby is grateful to her family and friends for their support and to her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, for holding her in the palm of his hand and guiding her through this most tragic period in her life.
