Author Biography

I've been writing about anything and everything since I met up and coming author, Judy Blume, when I was in the sixth grade. While most of my work over the past twenty years has been parenting/family resources, inspirational non-fiction and curriculum, it is now time for me to begin telling my stories; the stories of the people and events that have made my life the wonderful adventure it is.

When I'm not writing, you will find me spending time with my husband, playing with my grandchildren, gardening or spending time with a special group of young people I call my kids.

All My Love George: Letters from a WWII Hero by Darla Noble introduces us to George Burks, Technician Third grade, a medic who served and gave his life in the South Pacific during World War II. This book compiles the letters that George wrote home to his family before he died from boot camp and through the days that he served over a period of three years. We also get thoughts and memories woven in with the letters from George’s younger brother, 65 years after George died. This is a very real story in a very turbulent time for the world and shows us what valiant real-life heroes lived and died during that war.

Darla Noble has put together a beautiful book that shares the story of George and his family through letters and memories. World War II is always an emotional period to read about, whether it is fiction or non-fiction, but reading these letters, words from someone who was really there, touches you. We always say that all soldiers are heroes but rarely get such a personal look at to what they are feeling or thinking during the whole process of war. I think it is the fact that this is a real and very human story that brings you into it. I hope that everyone will read this book because it is a story that needs to be read and remembered. The author has done a wonderful job at presenting it in a memorable way that will keep you reading from cover to cover.
