About the Author

Edward and Eunice Vought

Edward and Eunice Vought are the proud parents of six children. They live in Marion, Ohio, where Edward is a manufacturing engineer and Eunice works with the Head Start program. For the past thirty years, they have been involved with church and school youth programs as well as summer sports programs with their children and friends. The Voughts began writing Best Friends for their grandchildren, until friends convinced them to expand the circle and share the story with others. “We have always felt that there are not enough books with Christian principles written in a way that is entertaining as well as uplifting for teenagers and young adults.” Both converts to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in their early teen years, the Voughts say of Best Friends: “Most of these experiences and feelings are common to the young and not-quite-so-young people of pretty much all religious persuasions.”
