Publisher's Description

     Well-known blogger and newspaper columnist, Dorcas Smucker, writes with disarming clarity about life on and off an Oregon grass farm as her six children move towards independence. With rollicking humor and many tender moments, her essays will entertain you and soothe your soul.

     Downstairs the Queen Is Knitting is Dorcas Smucker's brand new chronicle of family life with six fast-growing up kids. Downstairs the Queen Is Knitting follows Dorcas' two earlier and beloved collections, "Upstairs the Peasants Are Revolting" and "Ordinary Days." The kids are a bit older now, and Dorcas and Paul's marriage is longer and deeper. But Dorcas sees with more disarming clarity than ever, and she writes piercingly about life on and off the grass farm as the kids move toward more independence. Downstairs the Queen Is Knitting will entertain you, and ultimately it will soothe your soul.

Author Bio

     Dorcas Smucker, a mother of six and a Mennonite minister’s wife, lives in a 95-year-old farmhouse near Harrisburg, Oregon. In addition to her normal responsibilities of pulling splinters, settling arguments, and mopping floors, she writes a column, “Letter from Harrisburg,” for the Eugene, Oregon, Register-Guard. She also speaks to various groups, which she enjoys because everyone listens and no one interrupts. Her interests and hobbies include reading, crafts, sewing, travel, and exploring the Internet. She is the author of Upstairs the Peasants Are Revolting and Ordinary Days: Family Life in a Farmhouse, both published by Good Books.
