Nan Friedley


Nan Friedley was born and raised in Indiana, but now lives in Southern California.  She recently retired from a 30-year teaching career in special education, which allows more time to spend with two grandsons and her reclusive cat, Rosie.  Now she finds herself dabbling in family genealogy, reading more, regularly participating in kickboxing classes, and playing those addictive on-line games with friends.
