Jory Reedy


Jory's love for reading began many years ago when her granddmother would spend hours reading to her. In third grade she was introduced to the "Little House" books by Laura Ingalls Wilder. Then after reading the John Jakes North South trilogy Jory knew history was somewhere in her future. Jory graduated with a degree in history and a certificate to teach social studies. But her heart was not in teaching. Instead she went in to retail management. And what better place but a book store. She spent many years selling books,writing reviews, conducting book groups and most importantly reading. Jory made a career change and went in to healthcare. It was a good move because the day she was diagnosed with inflammatory breast cancer was the day that nothing else mattered but family and living. She is still going strong. Jory lives one day at a time and enjoys life with her husband John, daughter Jessica, granddaughter Salem, and her 2 dogs Duke and Lenny. Life is Good.
