Lee Carver

Author Bio:

Lee Carver lived in the Brazilian Amazon for six years, the hardest and best years of her life. She and her husband served as volunteer missionaries with a Brazilian organization, Asas de Socorro (Wings of Help), formerly MAF-Brazil. Her husband flew the amphibious ten-seat Cessna Caravan, featured in Love Takes Flight over jungle area half the size of the United States. Their home in Manaus—the largest city in the world with no road to it—was a free guesthouse for missionaries, pilots, mechanics, and medical volunteers. She went on missions, speaks the language, and knows the people whose story she tells.
Lee lived in Brazil a total of twelve years, including two transfers to São Paulo while her husband worked for Citibank. Other foreign postings were Greece, Saudi Arabia, Argentina, Indonesia, and Spain. She studied nine languages and visited over forty-five countries. The Carvers now reside in Texas but are still active in Brazilian aviation missions.
Lee is a member of ACFW and active in its local chapter, ACFW-DFW Chapter a.k.a. Ready Writers, and enjoys quite a few non-writerly endeavors.
