Comments from the author about writing: I research and write about Iowa history. Most of my work is about the Butler County area. I enjoy the research and write it to pass the information to our future generations. My grandchildren were the catalyst for me beginning to write. There is so much information out there that we need to pass on.

I enjoy sharing this information with anyone, but especially like talking to groups of children.
