Updated June 23, 2010
Adela Crandell Durkee comes from a family of storytellers. Being a little more introverted, Adela puts pen to paper. First published at the age of five, she writes two blogs, is active in BlogHer.com and SheWrites.com, and is working on her first novel.

In addition to creative writing, Adela has been in a leadership role in Regulatory Affairs and Quality Assurance for pharmaceutical companies for the past 30 years. She lives among the trees and wildlife of Illinois with her husband George, and within driving distance are her four children, her eleven grandchildren, and the exciting city of Chicago.

Adela maintains two blogs: Once a Little Girl, a nostalgic observation of childhood, family and life through the lens of the past; and The Black Tortoise, current headlines and topics from a perspective of wisdom born with age.
