The author’s writing life has included years as a magazine editor; also numbers of published articles about creative people, including Jehan Sadat of Egypt—Her work for peace; and her work on a project about PBS News Anchor Jim Lehrer's career as a novelist. Growing up in a military/ diplomatic family, living in the US, France, and the Far East, all expanded the author’s world view.She holds a Master's Degree in human development and finished seminary in 2007. Wonderful family memories and the rich variety in her work nurtures her passion for history.
