What was it like to be a teen-age girl growing up in the '60s?

STEPPING FORTH is Ann Ulrich Miller's memoir of those agonizing,
self-conscious,
embarrassing
years of adolescence,
when . . .

Her brother gets deployed to Vietnam ... A beloved grandmother dies ... First crushes begin to surface ... Bad hair days in high school ... The curse of self-consciousness ... Music and nature are her comfort zones ... Long vacations with the family as a teen "with an attitude" ... Hormones begin to erupt ... A teacher shows interest in her gifts ... Her love for animals inspires her to strive for a career in veterinary medicine ... Her fascination with the Paranormal and some intriguing events that shape her future career as a novelist and the publisher of The Star Beacon and Wisp

Ann (Schumacher) Miller divulges her most intimate writings as she emerges into womanhood in small-town Monona, Wisconsin, with unforgettable tales of growing up in a family of six kids, her close childhood friendships, fleeting as well as "serious" loves, influential dreams, art and musical talent, an addiction to Nature and living things, with outspoken personal snippets on the political events of that time.

"The joy you derive from writing is multifold. The artistic expression flows from your soul, and letting words form the stories gives the same upliftment to you that playing each measure of music on the piano does.
      "Your siblings, children and grandchildren will appreciate the chronicles of your younger years and what was going on in the world at that time.
      "It is enjoyable reading for anyone. And -- I think it's an escape for you into a private, peaceful space ... your sanctuary in times when life isn't very pleasant. We all need a special place like that!"
                                       -- Suzanne Ward
Author of Matthew Tell Me About Heaven
and Amusing to Profound: My Conversations With Animals


      "Enjoyed your book so much. It took me on (a) Memory Lane space trip as I lived through some of those wild days in the '60s. I think you had a little more everyday stable life in one place and town. As a missionary and preacher's kid, I was lucky to live in one place and school for one year.
     "Like you, though, I had a loving family ... I liked the way you loved animals and how you saw your real gifts. The earth needs more people like you."                                          -- J. Smith
