As written beneath her yearbook photo, Class of 1970, the expressed lifetime goal of the author herein known as Myrtle Brooks is "to realize the love present in everything." Maturity has taught her that this is a vision meant to be shared.

Born in Manhattan, she spent her first two (formative) years in Jackson Heights, Queens, before moving upstate. The year 2019 marks the 28th anniversary of her return home to her beloved New York City.
When not at home in her Brooklyn, N.Y., railroad apartment beneath the elevated subway, she may be found dancing with the big rigs on the interstate as she heads

Two attributes make me await the next in the Wrenn Grayson book series. One is impeccable wit. Author Connie Chappell seasons her whodunnit mysteries with a wry humor throughout the story which causes me to chuckle repeatedly.

“Faithful I have sought to be in all my ways Since my conception in fire and in water.
“To be a fount of wisdom and purity of spirit
Far more prized than veins of gold and silver
And to this my soul has aspired.

“Not due to my own pursuits
That man named me the Faithful Elder.
A Higher Oath than mine has fixed
My pleasant boundaries
And the times of my bursting forth into the open
Not of my choosing.

“The countenances of multitudes I have beheld
And have seen them take delight in my greeting.
They throng close to my doorway
Men, women and children
Eager witnesses of my mystery.

“From every corner of the earth, bringing
The languages of ancient lands upon their lips
And their spices upon their garments.

“And what they find takes on a meaning of its own
Within each
Amidst the resplendent pillar.”
Myrtle Brooks, The Geyser Girl of Yellowstone Park

“Builders build.
Destroyers come behind builders to destroy their works.
They cannot.
The legacy is already planted.”

“If you can't get over it, get on with it.”
