Rose Bingham is the author of Buy the Little Ones a Dolly, a memoir about moving forward after the disappearance of her mother. The story will appeal to both adults and teenagers who have gone through life's tragedies, as well as readers who are looking for human interest stories. Rose is a retired nurse who graduated from St. Francis School of Nursing in LaCrosse, WI and received her BSN from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. In addition to writing her memoir, she enjoys writing poetry. Rose and her husband, Mike, reside in Wisconsin Dells, and have six children, seventeen grandchildren, twelve great-grandchildren, and a spoiled dog, Rylee.

Doris Green is the author of Elsie's Story. Haunted by her aunt's death in a northern Wisconsin tavern, Doris Green seeks answers. She embarks on a decades-long search using a combination of journalistic inquiry, family history research, and even hypnosis and other alternative ways of knowing. The quest leads to secrets, surprises, and, finally, a solution. Elsie's Story is Doris's fourth nonfiction book for general audiences. She co-founded and published Wisconsin Community Banker magazine for the former Community Bankers of Wisconsin and was a communications specialist with the School of Human Ecology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.  Doris lives with her husband and three distracting cats in a log house near Spring Green, Wisconsin.
