JEANNE CANNELLA SCHMITZER was a librarian in both the public and academic library worlds. With a background in history she has published works in several historical journals. Currently she is an adjunct professor of history at Tennessee Tech University. She loves bringing history to life for her students and helping them interpret historical sources to understand the past and present. She lives with her husband in a house they share with two cats. There is a vegetable garden out back with a fence to keep the deer out. Rabbits are not allowed in there, either.
