Elva Anson is the author of six books, three of which sold close to 20,000 copies. She has been featured on 70 – 80 radio talk shows, appeared on television a few times, and sold magazine articles to publications including Reader’s Digest. She has also been a speaker at schools, churches, Rotary Club and other events. She belongs to CWC, ASJA, and NCPA.
She was inspired by her friend, Kiyo Soto, to write her memoir, Wondering Around God. Here is how one reviewer, Elisabeth Kersten, retired Director of Calif. Senate Office of Research, describes it. “Elva Anson is a first-rate storyteller. She knows just how much detail to give the reader to get you engaged. She packs in stories from every phase of her life. She really captures life in the Central Valley. This is the story of an amazing woman who found love, a teaching career, a counseling profession, as well as unshakable faith and inner peace–in spite of living during the tumultuous times of World War II and the Korean War. Her humility, humor and resilience are truly remarkable and life affirming. She ends with practical aphorisms but her narrative is not pedantic, just real and honest.”
