About the Author: As a young child, Jan Holte created stories and case histories for her dollhouse families. When she learned to write, she began to put these stories on paper and has been writing ever since. She has published several nonfiction articles. This is her first novel. Ideas for No Black Flags in Heaven came from stories her mother told her about her aunt and the 1918 flu. The author used her grandma?s house and yard, and the neighbor?s house across the small valley as the setting for her story. The idea of using flags to communicate occurred to her when she was nine years old, sitting in her grandma?s yard. The story percolated in her mind for years, before becoming No Black Flags in Heaven. The author lives in Minnesota with her husband and a crazy cat. They have two adult daughters and a grandson. An avid reader, she also enjoys word puzzles, swimming and ham radio.
