About the Author:

I grew up on an orange ranch in Southern California. After ten years, my family moved to the city but I always thought about returning to the country life. That never happened, so, after receiving my Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature at Occidental College, near Los Angeles, California, and forty-five years later, I began my writing career. I wrote about Farmer Jack and life on a farm. I have written serious poetry as well as an abundance of long, humorous poems about the characters and animals in the fiction setting. I have been blessed with an active imagination and a humorous sense of life. I have always been a creative type of person and, over the years, have had numerous hobbies and interests. I am an avid animal lover and own several dogs. I am also a big sports fan. My first book, Tales of Farmer Jack, preceded this current book, Adventures of Farmer Jack. I loved writing these humorous episodes about life on an old farm, and hope this book will bring enjoyment and pleasure to others. Louise Lefler Fry
