Having visited Montana for years from her nearby home in Idaho, Mabel G. Ebner has developed love and reverence for the state's scenic beauty and wildlife. She has expressed these feeling through her multiple talents and creativity.
One can appreciate this in her acrylic paintings of mountains, waterfalls, moose, and elk as well as through her Montana book series.
She is self-educated in creative writing and poetry, and has demonstrated a love of playing with words and a talent for painting pictures with them.
“Montana: Echoes of the Past” is Mabel's first novel, but not her first published work. Previously she published a book of poetry titled “Reflections of the Soul.” Her poem, Grandeur, from that work, was included in “Of Diamonds and Rust,” an international poetry publication.
Her poem, Silent Killer (about cancer), was published first on the Internet at poetry.com, and it received an Editor's Choice certificate from the International Poetry contest and was published in “Poet's Elite 2000.” She has also written stories for adults and children, songs, plays, and other poems not yet published.
Drawing upon real life experiences has helped Mabel portray the characters, the drama, and the emotions accompanying each story in this novel. She says that the Heavenly Father provides her talent and inspiration.
She and her husband, Maurice, have one daughter and have recently become grandparents. Mabel has sometimes paused during health challenges, but "quit" is not in her vocabulary.
Mabel has written sequels to her first novel and hopes to eventually publish them as ebooks. They are: MONTANA: A Brave New Tomorrow, MONTANA: Autumn's Lengthening Shadows, MONTANA: In The Hands of Time and MONTANA: Whispers From the Future.
