Keith and Janet Eldred with granddaughter Brook

Books gave us each other

We are giving back


At our 25th wedding anniversary, we set a big goal.

That goal was to raise $1 million from my writing and give it all to our public library.

Since then, I completed a  debut novel that we believe will earn that much. We believe it will earn more than that, to also benefit other public libraries.

Something happened just before our 25th anniversary that helped motivate this goal: Janet received a diagnosis of early-onset dementia.
