Florence M. Keaton is a retired teacher, and her ongoing research into her family tree inspires her to write novels relating to her ancestors' remarkable experiences. She was born and raised in Waco, Texas, and currently resides in Dallas, Texas. Presently, she's working on her next novel.
Florence's creative efforts stem from growing up in an airline family and traveling all over the world, her vivid imagination as an only child, and the losses and triumphs in her life. Music and rebellion ruled her teenage years, and after dropping out of high school at age sixteen, she wrote her first novel that is hidden in her closet because of its juvenile, uneducated prose.
At age thirty-three and with only a tenth-grade education, Florence enrolled in a junior college and won almost every collegiate writing contest she entered. School was difficult for her, but she persevered and transferred to a four-year university where she completed her studies.
After graduate school, Florence left the university, and her college degrees in English and geography took her back to the same junior college where she started as a student, but this time, she was on the staff as an English teacher. Over the years, she received praise from students and colleagues alike for her innovative teaching methods and her ability to inspire students to write creatively.
For Betty Nobles, 1901 is the year that started it all.
