Are my parents still alive? No. My mother passed away in 1999. My father in 2003. His wife Sue who talked about in the book passed away in 2005.
Where are your siblings now? My sister Kathy came to live in Lancaster, Pa in 1970 and Mary came to live with Kathy and her husband around 1971. John my brother lives in Georgia.
All three of my siblings love my book “The Promise” and have shared many copies with their church and friends.
Connie calls herself an autodidact writer. The word autodidact is as impressive as the time it takes to teach yourself how to master a craft. Auto means "self" and "didact" comes from the Greek word for "teach." Connie learned by reading, taking home study courses, and creative writing workshops. She talked, practiced and shared with other writers who encouraged her to write her story because it was too important, not to tell. Connie has three blogs, one sharing spiritual thoughts, another on aging gracefully, and the other her author site. She is so passionate about writing that she gets up every day at 5:00 am and writes for 2hours. She's a wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. Her hobbies are genealogy, lots of crafts, too many to mention. If you ask Connie what the greatest accomplishment of her life has been? She'll tell you it's the life she created by believing in something better, "The Promise!"
