More About the Author

Colorado author Joyce B. Lohse combines her journalism degree from Northern Illinois University with a background in genealogy and western history to write biographies for readers of all ages. She is administrator for Women Writing the West, and writes history articles for magazines such as True West, Steamboat, Colorado Central, and Women Out West. Book awards include 2012 Best Biography from Colorado Independent Publishers Associations, and 2010 Best YA Nonfiction Book from the Colorado Authors' League. In 2008, she accepted induction into the Colorado Women's Hall of Fame for her historic biography subject, Eliza Routt. Joyce's research has led her to lurk in cemeteries and archives in search of stories about pioneers and ancestors.

"I combine journalism, genealogy and history to write biographies. My goal is to preserve and share stories about pioneers and history of the American West through books, articles and presentations." -- Joyce B. Lohse

Format: Paperback
Although this book was written for children, I thoroughly enjoyed the book and learning about Justina Ford. What a remarkable woman. I think that the "Now You Know Bio" series is a wonderful idea for educating our children and ourselves! I look forward to reading more of them. Ms. Lohse is a talented writer and I look forward to reading more of her books. I bought this book for several of my nieces and my 83 year old mother enjoyed it too!

Thank you for fine writing for all ages.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Karen Marcus on July 12, 2005
Format: Paperback
This is a wonderful and educational book for children and adults alike. I have shared the book with my friend's children. The author did a great job of taking the reader back to the era, especially with the photos. Justina Ford was an inspirational woman. Justina's Bio, once again, proves that hard work, love of life and respect for others leads to so much self satifaction. The book helped to renew my determination to reach my own goals. I am so glad I had a chance to read it!
