About the Author

C.L. Louis was born in Watertown, N.Y. Her early years of life were in the 1950's from a lower middle class family. She attended parochial and public schools. Later her parents moved the family to a suburb of Syracuse, N.Y., where she attended public school, and graduated from high school. Struggling to survive on her own, she later attended college, majoring in psychology, and creative writing. For sometime she counseled other people with emotional and special needs. She then became interested again in writing, where she has written three books. Her first booklet of "My Aunt Rose," became the spin-off of "Mother Am I An Orphan?" It was the early years of recollections of her Aunt Rose and her father that gave her a sense that there was a purpose in living.
