About the author

Nita Marie Clark

<p>Nita is an alumna of the School Of Life Experiences. Graduating with a master&rsquo;s degree in positivity and an associate degree in fun and laughter.</p> <p>Growing up, it was the challenges and triumphs of friends she found on the pages of books that convinced her, that with perseverance happy endings are always possible.</p> <p>That belief played a large part in her motto of &ldquo;Life is to be celebrated, bad times happen good times are created&rdquo;.</p> <p>As a mother of two daughters and four sons, Nita led an active life volunteering in Parent-teacher organizations, scouting, and many other charities. She served for many years as a librarian at her children&#39;s elementary school.</p> <p>Like Nita, many &ldquo;stay at home moms&rdquo; have discovered the role of motherhood and volunteer although valuable, do not come with a pension plan.</p> <p>At almost fifty, she began searching for a way to be self-sufficient. Calling upon her creativity and sense of humor to create a unique enterprise and become a successful entrepreneur. That business still thrives today. Nita also shares her expertise with others wishing to own their own lawn greeting business.</p> <p>Now at eighty years old and a great-grandmother (of course,&nbsp;to&nbsp;the most amazing Grands in history), despite limited vision, Nita has started on a new path. With the support of a loving husband of more than sixty years, a very talented daughter, and great-granddaughter, Nita has combined her love of children and a love of the written word to create, The Secrets Of Zen Castle, a trilogy for middle-grade readers.</p> <p>The first volume, The Royal Search for Shenanigans is written to entertain and hopefully ignite an interest in the past.</p> <p>When shared between generations Nita would be delighted if her work began a dialogue about the reader&#39;s own unique heritage. At some point, we will each be known as an ancestor. Our struggles and successes will become a piece of our own family&#39;s history. It does not matter the level of fame or fortune, we each have a unique story to share. Those details should be put down on paper. To someone someday it could be the most amazing thing ever written!</p>
