Bette Dowdell grew up in The Salvation Army and worked in high tech--as an IBM Systems Engineer, small-company consultant and software company owner--and also taught the Bible to anybody who listened. Bette grew moving every year or two, since her parents served as officers in The Salvation Army, one of five children. She is the mother of two grown children, two children-in-law and the grandmother of two, one adopted from the Congo.
Bette wrote How to be a Christian Without Being Annoying, now available in hard cover, a large print edition and as an e-book. It explains the good news of how the Bible describes Christianity. Her memoir, On We March: A memoir of growing up in The Salvation Army, a loving, laugh-out-loud memoir that describes Army life and introduces a cast of characters you'll want to meet, will be released in October, 2008. An e-book The Christmas Invitation tells the whole of the Christmas story in its historical setting. Reviews of Bette's books typically comment on the scholarship, warmth and humor.
Bette currently lives in the Phoenix area.
