Marti Pieper’s passion to read, write, and pray makes her life an adventure. A prayer project led her to help Brent and Deanna Higgins tell their son’s compelling story. I Would Die for You: One Student’s Story of Passion, Service, and Faith (Revell, 2008) became a YA bestseller and missions classic.
Today, Marti continues as author, collaborative writer, editor, and conference speaker. Literary agent Christopher Ferebee represents her work. Marti shares her love for teens through the pages of Sisterhood Magazine and as Director of Prayer and Publication for Awe Star Ministries, a student missions-sending organization. She and her pastor husband, Tom, have five wonderful children, three of whom still live at home.
