Lenora Rain-Lee Good
Born and raised in Portland, Oregon, Lenora Rain-Lee Good has lived most of her life in the Great Pacific Northwest. She served as a WAC in the Deep South and Germany where she was, stationed at Karlsruhe, Germany, the only WAC in town. Following her retirement from The Boeing Company in Seattle, she moved to warmer Florida for one year and 51 weeks. Her house was located close enough to a waterway that she could hear the 'gators roaring in season, armadillos roamed through her yard at night, snakes came up on her patio, and she experienced, first-hand, a category 5 hurricane.
Lenora moved again, this time to truly sunny and dry Kennewick, Washington, where she is happily at home with her cat, dog, and faithful muse. When she's not writing, she's quilting, making jam, painting the floor in her Frog Room (yes, she does have one!), or visiting online, by phone, or in person with her many friends –– and simultaneously doing research for her next writing project.
Lenora has sold three novels, My Adventures as Brother Rat -- a Young Adult novel of Ancient China; Jiang Li: Warrior Woman of Yueh --another Young Adult novel of Ancient China, and Yadh, the Ugly -- a Middle Grade fantasy. She also writes radio plays, short stories and poems. She loves to travel, photographing the landscapes she visits.

Madame Dorion: Her Journey to the Oregon Country
by Lenora Rain-Lee Good
Marie Dorion was an incredibly brave woman of the Iowa Tribe who, with her husband and two small children, guided an expedition from St. Louis across the country to present-day Oregon in 1811-1812. Though fiction, this book is a heavily fact-based account of that journey. Marie’s indomitable courage played a major role in opening the Oregon Country; she was truly our first Pioneer Woman.
