Littke grew up in Mink Creek, Idaho and studied education and English at Utah State University.

While working in Denver, Colorado as a secretary, she met her husband George through their local congregation of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church, or Mormon). They moved to New York City, where she attended the City College of New York and her husband studied at New York University. They moved to California with their young daughter, Lori, when George was hired to teach political science at California State University, Los Angeles. Littke would teach at Pasadena City College and University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). Her husband died in 1991.

Her first published pieces were for the Relief Society Magazine, Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine, Ladies’ Home Journal, and Seventeen. She later began writing books, including titles for young adults and children, of which she has now published more than forty.

She has served on the board of directors for the Miller Eccles Study Group, and has also been active with Sunstone and Exponent II, publications about Mormon issues.

She currently resides in Pasadena, California.
