About the Author

Louise Blocker spent her formative years on the farm where she was born in Swan Lake, Mississippi, then spent her teens in Memphis, Tennessee. Her education began in a church that served as a one-room schoolhouse. She went on to receive her Bachelor of Arts degree from Dillard University in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Her career as a language arts and social studies teacher at Hardy Junior High School in Chattanooga, Tennessee, ended when she began a westward migration-first to Lawrence, Kansas, then a step back to Kansas City, Missouri, before continuing on to Santa Monica, California. In 1991, she became the founder, editor, and publisher of CONTACT, the Blocker family's newsletter. Her "Blocker Family Prayer" and "1994 Blocker Family Reunion Prayer" are published in Book of Prayers by Holman United Methodist Church in Los Angeles, California.
The divorced mother of one son, grandmother of one grandson, and aunt to four generations of nieces and nephews, which totaled 553 in 2018, Louise observes the Sabbath at Santa Monica Seventh-Day Adventist Church in Santa Monica, California. When not engaged in Sudoku, she enjoys nature, the arts, and human interest stories that allow her to help others.

"Louise, your book is so beautifully written. It is tender, painful, moving, honest, hopeful, prideful, instructional/professorial--powerful. And this is just a quick list of accolades that pop into my head when I think of your histoir. I love the "Accompaniments" at the end of each chapter, too--a very interesting experiential addition. What an incredible undertaking and achievement! Thank you for writing this book, which I find aspirational." Susan Z. Vogelsang, Marina del Rey, CA
