About me

R.C. Durkee is a writer and professional artist who blends her love of history, nature and rural life into her creative projects.
The sixth generation to have lived on the family’s 180 year old farm, she has raised draft ponies, sheep, cows and crops. Living on a generational farm ripe with history sparked her interest in early American history, historical places, century barns, and Civil War sites. Stories handed down have found their way into her essays, short stories and now novels. She loves the outdoors, nature, gardening and farming and enjoys reading historical non-fiction.

Porrello Program

Attended Rick Porrello's program at Mayfield Branch of Cuyahoga County Public Library. Interesting presentation on Cleveland's mob history. He also talked about his experience having his book turned into a movie. Bought a copy of SUPERTHIEF and had him sign it. Glad I went.
