Family Writings

Big Topics at Midnight was written on a strong foundation, much of which was laid by others.  Sources include books I’ve read, reread and cherished, family genes and habits, Mom’s genealogical research, Grandmother Ann Mathys’s dance book Grandmother Ruth Tipps’s storytelling notebook, family letters and so much more.

I can’t really put a family habit on a website, and other authors’ books are theirs to share, but I am thrilled to give you a peek at some of the family writings that have supported Big Topics at Midnight.  New entries will be added very month or so.
