About Adelyn Zara

Adelyn Zara knew she wanted to be a writer after creating a paragraph about a snowman in 4th grade. 

She taught herself to type when her grandfather brought home an old typewriter from his job in Chicago. 

She loved working with international students but hated the pressure cooker of work.  So, she retired! But she continues to belong to NAFSA, National Association of International Educators. 

She has compassion for the mentally ill because of her daughter, joined NAMI (National Alliance of Mental Illness), taught Family to Family classes for them, and keeps learning more about it. 

She faces an ongoing battle with breast cancer and considers herself earning a Ph.D. in it, something she never wanted to do. 

She’s been told she’s RESILIENT, and by God, those are the woman she admires most! Her stories feature men and women who are encountering problems in life and figuring out how to overcome them.

Curious?  Give her a read.
