My name is Jean Donahue and I am a writer. I love writing. There are so many stories to be written to be read. I am using the pen name of Jean A. House for my Murder in Mystique stories.
When my granddaughter was adopted, she didn't understand English. Her mother kept saying, "Let's go to Grandma's house." She thought my name was Grandma's House. Thus, the last name I am using for fiction.

I took care of my parents the last 4-1/2 years of their lives. After they died I wrote a book about my experiences if taking care of them. Dad loved to travel and always pulled a trailer, so that's what we did. We traveled through Canada, California, Arizona, Texas and all points inbetween. The last 2 years we couldn't travel because Dad kept having strokes and Mom's Alzheimer's got worse.
I wrote a column for 5-6 years to help the untrained family caregiver (Practical Caregiving) for a website out of Connecticut. You can see some of my columns on my icaredforyou.net web site.
There wasn't much of a market for that type of book, so I published it
through amazon.com. You can buy a copy of it there. My web page for the
book is: http://www.icaredforyou.net.
What was it like to be born in 1905, and grow up in the hills of Northern Missouri and Southern Iowa? Earl Coulsonís memoir tells the stories of how he started life from humble beginnings, and through hard work and determination created a better world for himself, his family and everyone whose lives he touched.
When he was young, his family did not have much, but they did not consider themselves poor because most of America was in the same situation. Life in those times presented a set of challenges that would seem unbelievable to this generation.
Earl did what was needed to care for his family Ė farming, carpentry, and teaching to name a few. As the years went by, he dedicated himself to continuing his education and became a respected School Superintendent. He eventually retired to a life he enjoyed Ė traveling north in the summer, south in the winter, and spending time with his family and friends while home in Iowa.
Join us as we walk down memory lane and enjoy the unique and unfathomable stories of a life well lived.
