About the Author

Author James Allen Plessinger
First-time author James A. Plessinger graduated from the United States Merchant Marine Academy and achieved the rank of a full Lieutenant in the US Navy. James received a Doctor of Law degree from UConn School of Law. He participated in over four thousand civil and criminal cases in the states of California, and Connecticut, as a trial attorney since his admission into the Connecticut Bar in 1967, and the California Bar approximately in 1986. James was licensed to practice in all California State and Federal Courts, including the California Supreme Court. During a custody appeal to the Connecticut Supreme Court in 1979, James created a Bill of Rights for Children, which found its way into law books. At one time, the published case became the leading case regarding international custody. A great storyteller with a sense of humor, he penned his memoirs during his eighty-fourth year of life alongside his daughter as he remembered and relived memories he was excited to tell. James was a dedicated supporter of many charities with Dorothy, and both were lifetime members of the Episcopal Church. In later years, they were active members of Saint John's Episcopal Church in Roseville, California.

Author Diane Frances Colby
First-time author Diane, with her father, James Plessinger, during the last year of his life and their last year together-not knowing that it would be-writes her first book. A second book was in progress. What began as a journal and storytelling between father and daughter became much more. Diane graduated from Syracuse University with a BS degree, where she went on in business, retail buying, and promotion. Diane later obtained a California real-estate license in 1988, where she was an effective communicator, trainer, and received several awards in her field. After leaving her native state of Connecticut, she has enjoyed Northern California with her sons and animals. Diane and her father spoke of the hope of this book speaking out to the much-needed cure for Alzheimer's disease, and the day those in such despair are healed.
