She is currently editing her first novel, a romantic suspense aimed at Harlequin’s Love Inspired line. 

Vice President – Kirk Rainer

Kirk is an engineer with more than twenty years of experience primarily in aerospace and defense. While able to continue his profession (in some degree), H. Kirk Rainer has also been embroiled in the never ending consequences of no-fault divorce and parental alienation— the details of which are reflected in his books, Websites (,, and other developments. Support organizations include: American Coalition for Fathers and Children (; Alabama Family Rights Association (; Protect Fathers' Right (; National Father Initiative (; Institute for American Values (; and the Florida International University (FIU), "The State of Fatherhood" research.

Secretary/Treasurer – Tracy Redman

Tracy served as president for two years.  Under her leadership FCCW changed venues from Christ Church in Mandarin to the Wesconnett Library on the Westside.  We immediately saw growth and revitalization of the group. 

Tracy has lived in many foreign countries and draws from a rich well of life experiences in her writing.

She is studying mental health counseling and working on a devotion book for those experiencing the pain of divorce.
