The Easter Story

Unsung Hero

Life and Times of Albert V. Greene

Unsung Hero 2018 won the Royal Palm Literary Award of the Florida Writer’s Association. Unsung Hero, my first written and published book won second place in a writer’s contest award.

It is the story of an unknown soldier who fought in World War II, Korea, and Vietnam. The soldier happens to be my father. This book is a tribute not only to him, but to all men and women who serve our country today, yesterday, and tomorrow. The book is a biography that includes my father’s memoir of his time as a POW of the German Reich in Italy.

Dandelion Child

A Soldiers Daughter

In 2019 Dandelion Child won the Royal Palm Literary Award of the Florida Writer’s Association. Dandelion Child took thirty years to write. Writing this memoir began as an assignment from my doctor to help me handle trauma I experienced as a military child. By the time I published the book, the trauma had dissipated. Writing this memoir helped me cope with life’s circumstances.

The Reason for the Season

A Thoughtful Gift For the Holiday Season

 
In 2021 Churches were closed during the Covid-19 Pandemic, so I spent my time reading the Bible and studying scripture. When the Christmas season began, I decided to concentrate on the biblical story of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ’s birth. As I read, prayed and studied, I chose to create a 32-page magazine style book with activities, crafts, recipes, color pages, crossword puzzle and essays explaining the stories, their history, and cultural traditions in language that could be understood and explained to people of all ages. The Reason for the Season is my first devotional, Christian religious writing.

He Lives

The Easter Story

The Pandemic continued through 2020 and 2021. My knee surgery refused healing, so homebound and hurting, I studied and wrote devotions for Eastertide. This time I rewrote each Bible Story selected putting the reader into the action. I presented questions and answers, personal experiences, prayer, devotions, as well as crafts and recipes for the family to share. I learned a lot and you will too.

Memoir Writing with Peggy

 

2022 My strength in writing is the memoir genre. People tell me their life’s stories and I ask, “Have you recorded them?” They say, ‘I want to, but I don’t know how.” This little book is my way of helping fledgling memoirists organize and begin recording their memories for the future, most often their children and grandchildren. As I tell them. “When you are gone, so is your story. Leave a footprint in this world.”
 

Mrs. White and the First Americans

 How did the Native Americans come to America? The answer is more complicated than originally thought. The early people known then as Indians, traveled from Asia to Alaska during the Fifth Great Ice Age. Mrs. Whitehead who magically becomes Wise-Woman-Who-Tells-Stories  shares three ideas. How did they survive? What did they do? Read her stories about Eve-Woman and Crow-Man as they  battle giant sloths and hunt mammoths.

A planned series of middle grade historical-fiction books
about the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois Nation)
is being written and will be available in the near future.
