Jo's hobbies include photography, travel and ancestry research. Her roots go back into early American history with relatives who signed the Declaration of Independence, fought in the Revolutionary war, an aunt who died in the Salem witch trials, and Quaker ancestors who helped slaves escape on the underground railroad. All of the photographs for PIANO STORIES were taken at the historic Bucks County, PA home where her Quaker 4th great grandparents lived in the late 1700s-early 1800s.

"Walking. I am listening to a deeper way. Suddenly all my ancestors are behind me. Be still, they say. Watch and listen. You are the result of the love of thousands." - Linda Hogan
