Daughter of former residents writes book

The daughter of former Ringgold County residents, Mr. and Mrs. Forrest FOLTZ, has published her second book titled, "Mistakes That Worked."

Charlotte FOLTZ JONES began writing stories at the age of eight and poetry while she was in high school. She is a graduate of Central Business College in Denver, CO and studied writing at the University of Colorado.

Her first book, "Only Child: Clues for Coping," was published in 1984. She is alo the author of over 100 magazine stories.

While she admits that most of her cooking and gardening mistkaes have not worked, the success stories of mistakes with happy endings inspired JONES to keep trying and, in fact, to write her book, "Mistakes That Worked".

John O'BRIEN, who has illustrated this book, also has engaging illustrations in more than 15 children's books and major children's magazines, including "Cricket and Highlights for Children."

The author lives with her family in Boulder, CO. She is the niece of Edna RYAN, Donella HARTMAN and Harold FOLTZ, all of Mount Ayr.

NOTE: Charlotte is the daughter of Mildred and Jake FOLTZ and a granddaughter of Anna STEPHENS and Earl DEIBERT.
