Alicia Gossman-Steeves is a wife, mother of three boys and a step-grandmother to two girls and two boys.
“Leece” is in the criminal justice system, on the right side of the bars, as a court clerk. She has also worked as a reporter for a Smallville daily, and as managing editor for three dailies and a weekly agricultural journal. Sadly, Leece became a casualty of the editorial prostitution rampant in today's print newspaper industry, and is now free-lancing.
As a writer, she has had her work published in local publications and A Cup of Comfort Devotional for Mothers. She is also working on “Jesus and the Android”, a book examining Christ and Christian spirituality in today’s wireless, high tech culture.
She is a budding photographer, using a Canon 5D MkII with a few good lenses in her bag, and a Canon 30D as second string. She is working on some photography projects concentrating on southeastern Colorado.
Before her first husband, Gordon, died of pancreatic cancer, Alicia was a stay-at-home mom, pastor’s wife and a part time correspondent for an agricultural newspaper.
She has a B.A. in Sociology from Point Loma Nazarene University and a Master’s degree in Religion with an emphasis in Spiritual Formation from Northwest Nazarene University.
In her spare time, Alicia enjoys bike riding, photography, crafting, spending time with the family, writing, cooking, baking and shopping (!).
Leece rides a Gary Fisher Tassajara GS.
