Book Martha Bolton.

From church secretary and drama team leader to Emmy nominated staff writer for Bob Hope, author of over 45 books, and a writer for such entertainers as Phyllis Diller, Ann Jillian, Wayne Newton’s USO show, Jeff Allen, Mark Lowry, Kathy Troccoli, and more, Martha Bolton has come a long way. Also known as “The Cafeteria Lady” to the thousands of Brio magazine readers, Martha believes that laughter and faith in God are the best shock absorbers for life.

Her latest releases include Didn’t My Skin Used to Fit? (Bethany House Publishers), Rest in the Lord, but not in English Class (Vine Books), and Saying Good-bye When You Don’t Want To (Vine Books, release date 3/02.) So, whether you read a Martha Bolton book, or hear her speak in person, one thing’s for certain-you’re going to laugh, learn, and maybe even appreciate life’s pot holes just a little bit more.
