P.E. Pence, Phil & Elaine, are authors of family friendly fiction. They are Virginia natives but they moved to Nauvoo, Illinois in October of 2021. Married in 1979, they spent most of those years working hard, holding down a full time job, renovating houses, running an ice cream parlor and a community theater(not all at the same time, but often overlapping) as they raised 8 immensely talented children. They began their storytelling careers at their bedsides and affectionately refer to them as Pencelings.
