An English Mum of two, living in Massachusetts since 2003 with her husband, two teenage kids, a cat named Midnight, a bunny named Nutmeg and a leopard gecko named Ziggy Stardust. She is currently working on putting together a collection of the memoirs and poems of her late father, John Cornelius Rogers.
Lucky Jack (1894 -2000) is the published life story of her grandfather Henry John Rogers:
Meet Jack Rogers. Born in 1894, he once locked eyes with Queen Victoria and was one of the first travellers on London’s ‘Tube’. An early car owner, he had many escapades on his days out to Brighton, including a time when his brakes failed and he had to drive through central London without them!
His skills as an entertainer earned him popularity throughout his life, and kept him out of the deadly mines while a prisoner during the First World War. At the tender age of 103 Jack earned the title of ‘The World’s Oldest Columnist’ as he began dictating his life’s exploits to a reporter from the local newspaper.
