About the Author

Having lived in the Hudson Valley off and on all her life, Allene Hatch considers herself part of its fabric. Raised in a beautiful Dutch Colonial house built in 1762 on a 350-acre farm in the village of Clermont, she grew up in the center of the Valley itself.

In the 1960s Allene started writing and illustrating articles for the Barrytown Explorer, a newspaper owned by Chanler Chapman, one of the "mad Chanlers" in Lately Thomas's Pride of Lions.

In 1973 Allene wrote and illustrated her first book, Menopause Can Be Fun, which was published in Holland and Germany but not America, where the subject was taboo in those days. When her husband, biographer/historian Alden Hatch died in 1975, she finished writing his just-started biography of Marjorie Merriweather Post which was published in Palm Beach Life. Her third book, The Best of Times was published by Writers Club Press. It is a memoir about the Hatches' adventures with princes, popes and presidents.

Just published, Allene's Real Pearls and Darned Stockings-Tales of the Hudson Valley, is a series of amusing, revealing vignettes relating to the inexorable changing of The Old Guard in the Roosevelt/Livingston Hudson Valley. It will soon be followed by the updated second-edition of her Menopause Can Be Fun.

When not writing, Allene keeps busy painting portraits and murals. She is a long-time resident of New York City, and now divides her time between the city and Kinderhook, New York.
