Available on Amazon.com's Kindle Store: Memories of a Baby Boomer and Jarbalo-6 Months on the Farm. Both stories run nearly back to back from the 50s through 1961 in the midwest, specifically, St.Louis' West County and Jarbalo, Kansas. Both are great reads for hilarity and memories of families during that era when children did not get a vote in where the family went, nor were even asked their opinion of same. Fun for those over the age of 55 and for those younger....a study in what we were doing in the 50s and 60s and how our lives paralleled those of Leave it to Beaver.

Have begun the sequel to Serenia's Kanzas and am calling it ANNE. This will be the story of the witty, headstrong, red-haired daughter to Serenia who bore the Boston children in a rough and tumble prairie town of Ellsworth, Kansas. Ann was not the refined lady her mother was, she smoked a pipe, right along with her husband, and told rough hewn tales right along with the men. She was not a beauty, but spritely, petite and full of fire, as was her hair. Readers should enjoy this tale of from 1871 to the 1920s which is rich in dialogue and spirit.
