Jean Edwards lives with her husband on the banks of the Saint George River. Throughout her growing up years she was interested in writing poetry, essays and scripts for marionette performances. While raising her four children, she worked for the Food and Drug Administration preparing congressional correspondence for signature and obtained a position as an Internationally rated Gymnastics Official. She worked with theater in schools and the City of Rockville, Maryland Ballet. When her four children graduated from college (an engineer, a schoolteacher, a YMCA program director and a Public Health Service Commander), she was able to devote more time to her passion for writing. This is her twentieth book which includes nine historical novels, a script and music for an operetta, 6 children’s books, a book of essays and three books of poetry. Her song lyrics are included in a compilation of poems.
