Bonnie Simpson is a freelance writer who enjoys lively inspiring discussion whether in person or virtually on all things of life, love and family. Her book began as a journal; and over the course of seven years, she decided to share a few episodes of her life from humble beginnings up to the point her 16-year marriage dissolved.
A native of Shaw, Mississippi, her parents, Norah Bady Sr. and Delphine Bady, relocated to Chicago, Illinois in the early 1960s to what is called the Near West Side; an area about 20 minutes from the Loop in Downtown Chicago. She is the oldest of four children.
Schools attended were Ethan Allen Elementary (K-3), William E. Gladstone (4-8) and Robert Lindblom Technical High School, now known as Lindblom Academy of Math and Science in Chicago's Englewood community.
When asked why she decided to write the book, Miss Simpson replied, "I want to give people something to compare against their lives and, hopefully, encourage them to think deeply about family legacy."
