Front Cover
Author House, Aug 9, 2011 - Biography & Autobiography - 216 pages
Jane and her husband, on assignment with AID, the U.S. Agency for International Development, traveled to Pakistan in 1953 with their three children to be faced with an experience that proved to be both funny and frustrating as well as educational. In Down the Drain she outlines some of these issues with humor and empathy. Her detailed memory is enhanced by the letters that she wrote to friends in the States, three of whom saved them and gave them back to her when she returned home.

About the author (2011)

Jane retired from her 15-year position as public relations coordinator at Foothill Presbyterian Hospital in 1986, after having spent most of her life as a volunteer doing charity work. After going back to the States, she and her three children (then 15, 13, and 6,) remained in Glendora, California, where they had lived previously; her husband Frank, returned to Pakistan for another two years. Jane’s volunteer efforts in the States and abroad won her a number of awards, including Glendora’s Citizen of the Year in 2000.
