About the Author:

An insatiable interest in her forebears led L.C.Bennett Stern to the discovery of a locally notorious ancestor—a grandfather never known to the author—the subject of this book. Linda happily shares life in southern New Jersey with her husband, a fellow writer. As she puts it: “Life at our house is very, very quiet – except for the occasional annoying bark of our Wheaten Terrier, Katie Scarlett, and the hum of two very busy computers.” www.lcbennettstern.com
