About the Author:

Author Eleanor M. Ryan has possessed a yen for writing since her teenage years. In 1930, as a freshman in high school, author Ryan entered a school essay contest about a mouse living in New York City named Benjamin and won. Yet her love of the English language was only just beginning, as her love for solving word puzzles has become a significant hobby in her older years.

Earlier this year, at the urging of friends, Ryan wrote several stories in a notebook that they found interesting. For many afternoons, she spent hours writing down memories while seated in her lift-chair in her living room. Before she knew it, the memories turned into the romance and tales of her life in the form of a manuscript. Ryan is excited to share more than a century of fascinating history and experiences through her unique perspective.
