Gwen was born and raised in DuBois, a small city in the western part of Pennsylvania. She married her high school sweetheart, Jerry, and they have two sons and a daughter. Their experiences over eighteen months of chicken raising became the basis of Sammy’s adventures.
The family moved to Pace, Florida where her life changed from being an “at home” mother to being a “working” mother. She retired after twenty-six years of working for the United States Government.
Besides her family, which includes a son-in-law, two daughters-in-law, four grandchildren and a great grandchild, she enjoys sewing, needlework, remodeling, gardening, canning, reading…and the joyful challenge of writing.
