Rosemary Adkins

My name is Rosemary “Mamie” Adkins and I was born and spent most of my childhood in Houston, Texas. Later, moving with my family to Las Vegas, Nevada, where I graduated from Bishop Gorman High School in 1965. After graduation, my family moved to Redding, California, where I resided for about six months, until I turned eighteen and fled the state and family home. From there, I became restless and moved around until I found a happy place to be in Eugene, Oregon. I am married to Douglas and have a extraordinary daughter, Kecia. My husband and I reside in the state of Washington.   Having dreamt of writing a book but always found it difficult, I felt it was time to try again. When the opportunity arose to take a trip to Ireland, I poured myself into it and studied Ireland for nearly two years. Part of my dream was to pay tribute to Douglas, my husband for loving and taking care of me for so long without ever a complaint.   A trip to Ireland felt so right and finally gave me the chance to spend quality time with the man of my dreams in a location that was surrounded by water, the very kind of place that gave me peace growing up! And I had secretly dreamed of repeating our wedding vows at the water’s edge and having a new wedding band blessed (Claddagh band) for the years to be shared for the next quarter century!   My book has been endorsed by Tyler Tichelaar, author of My Marquette (his newest release) and professional editor, as well as being endorsed by many others.
