Our Leading Ladies
Gloria Koehler was born in Albany, CA in the California Bay area at the onset of the Great Depression. Her parents were descendants of the first colonial settlers in the 1600s, and pioneers, who trudged across the plains westward in covered wagons. They have instilled adventure into her love of life.
Her interest in reading began at age three, when her two older sisters insisted she learn to read. She received her first library card as soon as she was old enough.
After a successful business career of 30 years, she and her husband, Ken, settled in Palm Coast, Florida, where she fulfilled her long-time dream to write a novel, Scruffy Brown Shoes. She currently resides in Leonardtown, MD.
Donna Eastman holds a BS from Simmons College, School of Publication, Boston, MA. She worked as a copywriter for the Pearson Group, was a managing editor at Little, Brown, and editor at McGraw-Hill, New York before embarking on a career in modeling and public relations. She also wrote a column for a metropolitan newspaper for five years.
After “retiring” and moving to Palm Coast, Florida, she taught classes to fellow writers on how to get published, and volunteered to edit their works. After meeting Gloria, she co-wrote See, I Can Do It! and Outrageous Kitty. She is the author of Terwilliger’s Tail, and is the co-author of the upcoming See I Can Do It! The Reluctant Eagle.
