I’m a busy RN with a full time job, a family, am a writer and editor (my true passions), and an amateur genealogisat. Meanwhile, I have written one novel (as yet unpublished) and am hard at work on a second novel. You can see my writing blog at: Writer’s Diary: The Adventures of a Writer – mostly a compilation of reviews.

I created this blog to document my genealogy research, loosely focused on tracing my husband’s and my roots and creating our family tree.

    Liked your blog. I see you are at Rowan. I give talks and classes on genealogy in the Cherry Hill area. Feel free to email me or visit my blog. Always glad to meet a fellow South Jersey family historian! Deborah Large Fox

    All good wishes, Joe

      I was happy to see your message. Your children’s book, Street Heroes, was phenominal and had me in tears at the end. Excellent work. I will definitely read your next book.

      BTW, I also have a writing blog at
