A history major in college, she is a lifelong resident of southern New Jersey, where she spent most of her professional life as a college librarian.

D. David Jones and Arthur J. Higbee are co-authors of Promising Forecast: A Miracle Rescue at Sea This self-published book details the true story when, in 1986, their fishing boat sank off the coast of South Jersey.
Daniel David Jones was born and raised in South Jersey where he still resides with his wife and five children and where his interest in fishing started as a child. He has owned and operated his own offshore fishing boat for over thirty years and have fished in numerous tournaments and fishing contests, both locally and nationally. Dave, as he is better known, began writing when injuries received in the U.S. Navy worsened and he was approved for a writing program. Since then, he has successfully published, and won awards for, his numerous short stories about the ocean and fishing. His true life experience, detailed in Promising Forecast: A Miracle Rescue at Sea, is co-authored with friend Arthur J. Higbee.
Arthur J. Higbee was born in Jamaica, Queens NY in 1952 and moved to New Jersey in 1958 where he lives in Northfield with his wife and two children. Living in South Jersey with the bay and ocean in his backyard has given him the opportunity to enjoy and make a part of his life the many water activities available. With Promising Forecast: A Miracle Rescue at Sea, co-authored with D. David Jones, he draws on fifty years of experiences to describe aspects of life in the area and, in particular, the near death experience on a sinking fishing boat. He is a graduate of the University of Miami and the Los Angeles College of Chiropractic.
