Welcome To My World-Great Day!

The New Book is coming along well. “Rose Donlin-The Next Generation” I am starting to type the story into my laptop to save. This is the 7th Chapter of “Rose’s Betrayal And Survival” Rose woke just as the sun was beginning to shine in her window. Her first thought was all the work she needed to get done that day. She hoped Joseph would let her open the door to the cabin to let some fresh air in, since the air in the cabin was always so stale. Opening the windows would not work for two reasons: Joseph allowed no breeze on him, and the windows in the cabin were built so they did not open. Rose made Joseph breakfast. She tried to do her chores earlier, because she needed to get to the creek to wash clothes. Her mind was busy thinking of a way to make Joseph feel better. The splashing of the water blocked out any noise. A feeling came over her and little shivers shook her body. http://www.collmannwarehouse.com

Welcome To My World–Writing Today!

My appointment with the dermatologist, had to have a small amount of surgery on a dark spot. It took 6 stitches. The sun is wonderful but can do so much damage to your skin. We can drive into the city of Chicago and not get lost. When we first arrived here we were lost most of the time. This is the 6th para. from the first book in the “Rose Donlin” series “Rose’s stood in her room, looking at the things that meant so much to her. She looked at the rag dolls her mother had made for her, and the patch quilt that covered her bed. How could her father make her leave her home? http://www.collmannwarehouse.com

Welcome To My World–Writing In New Book!

I made a new poster today to put in my booth at the Clay Co. Fair in Iowa. It says my new book is “Rose Donlin-The Next Generation” It will be published in 2014. This para. is from “Rose’s Betrayal And Survival” Louis Donlin had thought about his daughter, Rose. If this man could pay for her, he must have money. Louis had sent a return telegram saying that he had a daughter to offer in marriage, and he would take no less than $50.00. Rose Donlin was sold just like that.

Welcome To My World-Writing New Book!

Good Morning Everyone. The weather here in Chicago is very hot. We are staying in the Condo this morning, watching a movie with our 2 little granddaughters Morrison Rose and Gennings Grace. We will have lunch and then go to their house so they can play in the basement.      I continue to write in my new book–“Rose Donlin- The Next Generation”   It is going well, I will not have it published until 2014.     The first book in the 8 series of the “Rose Donlin Story is called “Rose’s Betrayal And Survival”   I will start with para. 2    The day before Rose’s father, Louis Donlin, had hitched up his horses and made his spring trip into St. Louis. He had taken the furs he had trapped along the river to trade for his food supplies and purchase a few more traps. The town was located near the river, so it was only a short trip.   Please check the story out–www.collmannwarehouse.com

Welcome To My World!

We are packing today for the trip back to Chicago, IL and to our Condo. We have been at our farm for 3 weeks. Cleaned a lot of buildings and continue to down size, hoping the children do not ask for it latter or spend time looking for it. Took the afternoon off and wrote in my new book  “Rose Donlin–The Next Generation”  The book is continuing Rose Donlin’s life. The story revolves around her grown children. It is big, ambitious, adventurous, it has more of life’s astonishing situations than any other Pioneer Story you have ever read. Please check it out at—http://www.facebook.com/collmannwarehouse.
