A Day In The Wetlands

Maud Helen Smith Parker was an artist, poet, and writer. A mother of eleven children, twenty grandchildren, twenty-one great-grandchildren, and three great-great-grandchildren, she lived to see four generations in her time. A New Orleans native, her love for nature and the bayou is a story told through her eyes since her childhood. She enjoyed listening to blues, jazz, and classical music, and even taught herself to play piano.

With over a decade of writing short stories, comic strips, cookbooks, and obituaries for the local paper, Maud was a uniquely wry voice that shines through her latest work A Day in the Wetlands, on the importance we place on legacy and letting the good times roll.

A professionally trained nurse, Maud spent the last decade during retirement reading, completing a creative writing course in Atlanta, Georgia, and writing a romance novel, giving her characters palpable spark. As a historian, Maud spent over a decade researching World War II.

Maud traveled the United States, Canada, and the Caribbean, learning about the region and walking the paths of her characters. Maud has been a lifelong writer and first began creating other worlds and characters since the third grade.

Maud passed away in August 2019 of natural causes before this book was published.
