Lois Lawson is a great-grandmother who captures her eighty years of living with a rare frankness mixed with humor. Born in 1934, Lois grew up at a time of innocence, moving about freely in the small central coastal town of Santa Cruz, California. Experience what it was like to be a child during World War II, and later, how it felt to "shoot the pants off" men in pistol matches as a teenager. Move with her from state to state with her first husband, an undercover agent, and their four children, and go from there to a marriage that combined seven children. Laugh as you read how she met her third husband and spent the night in jail. Visit her youngest in prison, and be with her when she receives a phone call from a second son after wondering for eleven years if he was dead. These stories are among the chapters you'll read in her books, along with heart-warming anecdotes that will have you smiling and crying. When Lois is not writing, she can be found walking along Capitola and Seabright beaches, working out at Capitola Fitness, swimming, playing dominoes with her fellow seniors in the mobile home park where she lives, and enjoying her family and friends.
