My Bio Designing books lets me combine my passion for photography and writing and I'm having a great time turning my mother's writing into books. Her book, My Flint Hills Childhood is the first of these. For her second book, the subject was my father, Clyde Owen Martin. My sister, Cynthia Jo Ross and I contributed to that one.

Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
I'm working on a book about my great-aunt, Bertha McGhee who had an interesting life as a missionary in Alaska.
Another book, based on my great-great grandfather's diary will cover his Civil War experiences in the 93rd Indiana Infantry and in Andersonville. There's quite a bit of research to do first.
I also want to get started on a book profiling interesting people in Butler County, Kansas (written by my mom and sister, Cynthia Ross).
