E. Jane Mall is the busy wife of a U.S. Army chaplain stationed in Nelligen, Germany.
In addition to her writing interests and her active participation in church work, Mrs. Mall and her husband are adopting three children - two German youngsters, brother and sister, 5 and 6, and a Chinese-American girl, 10. Mrs. Mall comments that it is much more difficult now to find writing time for her second book.
Born in Chicago in 1920, E. Jane Mall has spent most of her life in the Midwest. Accompanying Pastor Mall to parishes in Oak Forest, Ill., and Goshen, Ind., she also served as housemother for a year at a children's home in Waverly, Iowa.
Mrs. Mall contributes regularly to the mission publication Outlook and is currently writing a series of articles entitled "The Journal of a Chaplain's Wife".
