Comments from the author about writing: After forty years as an Iowa educator I returned to my first interest; that of writing which was encouraged by my elementary and high school teachers. I write story stories, memoirs and poetry. I write memoirs to reveal a personal view of history that is not found in history textbooks, and to encourage others to write their family stories. I write poetry because of my interest in words, and to encourage others to write poetry. The Quiet Journey is a collection of memoirs describing my life in Iowa during the second half of the twentieth century. Seeing Though Gray Colored Lens is a collection of poems about the every changing color of the world. Where Did All the Cowboys Go?, gives a first-person account of what life was like growing up in rural Iowa in the 1940s.
