Larry became interested in his family history, when his uncle and a distance cousin started gathering together family history. Larry was lucky enough to receive some of this history from both sides of his family with one special contribution of his Great-grandmother’s poems, photos and history from his grandfather. His second novel ‘Experience of a New Soldier’.
J.C. HAMM email@example.com
Emerging from the dark world of drugs, abuse, and domestic violence, Because of Me, is a story about starting over and the lessons learned from past mistakes. Her second novel is ‘Life Beneath the Willow’.
I’m a retired elementary teacher, having taught 3rd-6th grade. 5th grade was my favorite. Being retired gives me time to write, and enjoy being a guest teacher in many classrooms. I enjoy doing book signings and writer’s workshops in classrooms. Thank you, Jesus, for being my redeemer and my source of strength and inspiration.
