I grew up having photos of my ancestors on the walls of my home. I heard a few stories here and there, but I didn't really 'know' my ancestors. I want my children to know as much about their ancestors as they know about horses or Star Wars. That's a tall order. If I find a way to compile family history in an attractive format for them, they will know.
I started writing books because I believe everyone can play a part in the work of family history. You don't have to enjoy library archives or cemeteries to do something to preserve your family's heritage. With my books, I show you how to I take your memories and research and turn them into something your children and extended family members can enjoy.
When I'm not working on preserving memories, I am raising my five amazing children and sharing a wonderful life with a great husband in the Mid-West.
