Confessions of a Crafter, Meet Nancy Soderholm

I’m Nancy Soderholm and I make mittens. I make mittens from old wool sweaters that I diligently and obsessively search for at garage sales and thrift shops and in my husband’s closet (all donations accepted!) Actually,  mittens are the current project in a long line of projects. I have been sewing for more years than I care to count. Hemming jeans (I am very short) quickly got boring and I tried crafts, all kinds of crafts. If I wanted to keep myself in my hobby I needed to make it a business and start “selling my wares” at craft shows. Selling my crafts meant I could take all those dollars and run to the nearest fabric store. I eased my conscience.

My other obsession is travel. My husband and I (and assorted kids and grandchildren at various times) have been lucky enough to visit over 30 countries plus Puerto Rico, Hawaii and Alaska. We also lived in Iran for 18 months in the mid 70’s when it was relatively safe to live there.

My real job for 32 years was as a N.Y.S. certified high school teacher assistant so I had to face teenagers at 7:30 in the morning (but not without coffee!) I reluctantly moved to the Adirondacks with my husband in 1996 bu only part-time. We shuffled between two houses for about 10 years before becoming full-time residents at Coreys (between TL and SL.) I have climbed 23 of the 46 peaks so I call myself a “half-er.” We have four children, five grandchildren, two cats and live on a pond where we can kayak to the Racquette and beyond. Life is good!

 

Meet Sybil Bath, Author of The Greenhouse Murder

I graduated from SUNY New Paltz in 1976 with a BA in English and a minor in Environmental Geology and live with my husband, Dale, in Lake Placid. I’m a member of the Adirondack Community Church and have a daughter and a step son and daughter who live in Lake Placid and another daughter who is a teacher in West Virginia.

I love to read modern novelists (especially mysteries) and the Bible. My favorite Bible is The Inspirational Study Bible, translated by Max Lucado.  The Greenhouse Murder, which is set in Lake Placid, is my first published work. I’m  currently working on a suspense series and hope to have them published soon.
