Writing since the late 70', Aggie Villanueva’s first novel, Chase the Wind, Thomas Nelson 1983, was published before she was 30 and her second, Rightfully Mine, from Thomas Nelson in 1986. Rightfully Mine has been republished.
Villanueva freelanced throughout the 80s, also writing three craft columns and three software review columns, both for national magazines. She was featured on the cover of The Christian Writer Magazine October 1983.
After teaching at writer’s conferences throughout the Midwest, she founded/directed the 3-day Mid-America Fellowship of Christian Writers conferences for four years until 1990.
Photographic art entered by 2006, and within two years Villanueva was dubbed the Grandma Moses of the American Southwest by her artistic peers, and is represented in several online and walk-in art galleries across the nation.
Critically acclaimed in the June 19, 2008 issue of the Rio Grande Sun:
…Villanueva is one of those rare individuals who uses new technology…to take a digital image to a new and exciting level….With some photographers this digitizing and manipulation are evident and stumbling...not so with Villanueva's work, which is sophisticated and well thought out….She has a knack for transferring her impression of a scene to the viewer that is remarkable and almost magical.
As Aggie states; The Fairy Trail is real, folks. Welcome To My Path.”
Hi Aggie, Edie is a cute dog, but she belongs to the Dude - my dog, Shiloh (a chow mix) can be found in my pics - that's me with her on the mountain. I look forward to reading some of your writes - I'm going to check out your blog : )
