Betty Auchard was
a retired art teacher when her husband, Denny, died. For her, writing
became a way to heal, eventually taking on a life of its own. Her stories
have been published in the Chocolate for a Woman’s Soul
series and the San Jose Mercury News and other periodicals.
In addition to writing
full time, she presents the stories from this book to audiences in California’s
Bay Area and beyond. She still lives happily within driving distance
of her four children and ten grandchildren.
