Alma Quick

Frances L. Freeman

Alma lives in Independence, Missouri with a lazy, spoiled but beloved, housecat named Hobbes. She has five grown children and an abundance of grand- and great-grand children. She prefers to think of herself as the vibrant family matriarch rather than the ancient one.


​As early as firth grade, Alma knew she wanted to be a writer. That ambition was shelved for a few decades by marriage, children and career. After retiring from her job as marketing manager for a wholesale electrical distributor, she dove headlong into my passion for writing.

Having been a voracious reader all her life, by the time she neared senior citizen status she had grown tired of stories starring the young and beautiful. Where were characters she could relate to—the mature and adventurous? She knew there must be others like her who wanted to read about their peers. Hence, Molly’s First Golden Year was born.

She is working on a follow-up novel, as yet untitled, wherein characters you meet in Molly’s First Golden Year, must come to terms with secrets from the past.
