"I feel that if you are going to be an author or storyteller it is very important to know your own family story. If you start with your family tree, you may be surprised at what you'll discover. I have been able to trace my family's genealogy back for seven generations on my father's side, to Northern Ireland, and for thirteen generations on my mother's side, back to Switzerland. My ancestors were frontier folk who came to the Appalachian mountains of Central Pennsylvania after the Revolutionary War and cleared farms out of the wilderness. Everyone in my family, except for me, lives within ten miles of the old family farm."
