Illinois ConnectionI was born and raised in rural Richland County, Illinois, living there for over 55 years. I attended college at Olney Central College in Olney, Illinois. I now reside in Troy, Illinois. All of my books have been set in Illinois and are about Illinois residents. One of my books, ''Pickle Pots, Stupid Hats and Other Stories'' is a collection of stories about our pioneer ancestors living in Southern Illinois in the early 1900's. My book, ''Only On Loan, Notes from a journal edged in black'', is about a young man that lived 10 years in Illinois and passed due to heart problems. This is a book about dealing with losses.
Biographical and Professional InformationI continue to live in Illinois doing my writing and photography. For several years I was a leader of a local grief group. I was also a 4-H member and leader, winning many public speaking and demonstration contests. I was one of 10 in the nation to win the 4_H Safety Award. I have worked in genealogy for over 40 years and continue to work in this field
