Hello, I’m June Chapko, wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. I’m also mommy to Chai, a 3-year-old Shih Tzu, and Charlotte, a 2-year-old Shih Tzu. We reside in San Antonio, Texas. Besides writing, I love to quilt, garden, read, and visit tearooms.
I published my first novel, The Estate Sale, in 2018, followed by (award winning) Legacy’s Path, the second in my Legacy series, in 2019. Book three, Legacy’s Truth, came out in 2022. I also have a breast cancer devotional, “Cancer Courage Christ: A devotional for Breast Cancer Survivors,” (October 2021).
In 2020 I was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer. It reached some lymph nodes so I underwent chemotherapy before having surgery, followed by 23 rounds of radiation. I am now cancer free, thanks to God, my great medical team, as well as my family and friend’s (my “tribe”), prayers and support.
I am available for speaking and book signings. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 210-997-9559, for scheduling.
I’d like to encourage you to use the contact form if you have questions about any of the characters in my books. It’s easy to get caught up in a book and fall in love with a character. It’s possible you’re curious about a place I’ve mentioned, or the backstory of something. I’m happy to communicate with you concerning any of these topics.
I’ve also co-authored with Joyce Ainsworth, an award-winning Bible Study, Count It All Joy: a Study in James, and Strength for the Journey. Both are health & wellness Bible studies for individuals or groups. All books are available on Amazon.com.
I love speaking to women’s groups, leading workshops, and have a list of topics that include: Hope on a Rope (my testimony), The Blame Game (life changes), Senior Years (what now?), Spiritual Journaling (growing in the Word), and Finding Joy (even in cancer).
My devotional book, Cancer Courage Christ: A Devotional for Breast Cancer Survivors, is now available on Amazon.
