Intrigued by tales of a Dutch ancestor, and inspired by Dutch objects in her childhood home, Guin Calnon’s longing to visit the Netherlands increased. Her lifelong dream came true when she and her husband flew to Holland. Learning the village life and customs, she began writing her first novel, THOUGH THE WATERS BE TROUBLED. Even her mother’s miniature wooden shoes found their way into her story.
Her DVD presentation, “Dropping in on Holland,” features regional costumes, castles, villages, gardens, and windmills. In costume, she shares Dutch anecdotes. An exhibition adds a tangible dimension. She’s on Facebook and on her blog, she writes of her informative and humorous experiences in Holland.
Three of her children’s stories: Tulips of Love, No Wooden Shoes, and A Christmas For Others are published.
She was featured in the Greenville (SC) News March 18, 1992, and October 8, 1996, and listed in Who’s Who in U.S. Writers, Editors & Poets (December Press, Highland Park, IL., 1986-1987, 73)
She’s lived in Michigan, Wisconsin, and now resides in South Carolina with her husband, where they reared their five children.
