From The Frog Mystery by Dr Maurine J. Mazaruk

“I was born in Washington State.  My life has been a very interesting one to me.  There have been ups and downs just like anyone else.  I have lots of schooling and am always trying to go back to college for something that will interest me.  I am a senior adult.  Many people think I am younger than I am.  I love children and have four sons, three of them have been married and one has not found the love of his life yet.  The three who married have children of their own and some of their children have children.  So, I guess that makes me Great Grandma.  I love to watch nature to see what kind of weather we might have for the winter and I love nature’s wildlife too.  Why do I write?  It is an escape into whatever world I wish to be in. Been doing it ever since I was eleven years old.  I have written many stories.  Have started and not finished some.  Imagination is such a wonderful thing.  It is my world and I would like you to join me.

Maurine J. Mazaruk was born to parents Olive and Edward Easterbrook on September 8th, 1936.  Maurine’s siblings are Mary, Gerald, and Caroline.  She was born and raised in Bellingham and graduated from Bellingham High School in 1954.  Maurine served her country as a Navy Corpsman. Maurine was a beloved wife, loving mother of Don, Michael, Neil and Paul.  And a grandmother of 9 grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren.

Maurine worked in the medical field as a Certified Nurse’s Assistant and a Director of Activities. She was a Den mother for Cub Scouts.  And She volunteered for the Presbyterian Church in Kelso, Washington.  Maurine was a published author of Children’s books and she was also certified for Ministry by the Universal Life Church.

From Jane’s Magical Quest by Dr Maurine J. Mazaruk

“I was born in Bellingham, WA and still reside there.  I love to read, quilt, crochet, and I love to play on-line games.  Most of all, I love to write.  I love to watch people and learn from them.  The weather signs that nature tells us of what is to come is quite interesting too.  The enjoyment of my life are my sons, grandchildren and great grandchildren.  I have never been bored as I so often hear people say.  It seems my imagination is always working and the love to learn and investigate keeps me busy.”
