About the author (2001)

Nedra followed in her brother’s footsteps into one of the toughest places there is to work. Most of her success she owes to her big brother who paved the way for her. Between the two of them they had some of the roughest convicts believing that they were twins (brothers), that Robert had wrestled a shark that had bitten him and he had the shark tooth on a chain around his neck to prove it. Now, who is the Con-artist here? These two officers were born in Houston, Texas and grew up there. Nedra left in 1959 to join her husband in the army, traveling to Germany twice. Her husband died in 1975 leaving her to raise her four children on Social Security. She now has nine Granddaughters, a Great Grandson and four Great Granddaughters (two of the girls are twins). At this time she is retired, living on a sailboat with the soul mate of her dreams and cleaning charter boats. She says “Where else can you go to work out in fresh air, work up a sweat and get paid for it. A lot of people pay good money to go to a gym. I get it free and they pay me to boot. Now what more could you want?” Nedra has written several short stories, poems, news letters, working on that great novel “Winds of Time” as well as maintaining her family genealogy sites on the internet. She is fascinated with her family research having traced her father’s side of the family back to 1600 Scotland and her mother’s side to Wales in the same century. Her dream is to go to Scotland and Wales to visit the homeland of her ancestors.
