 About the Author
Sandra McCone (Alderman), author of the Three Little Lasses Series, grew up in the 1950s in the Midwest railroad town of Galesburg, Illinois.  Coincidently, she lived on the same street, two blocks away from the home of writer Carl Sandburg. Sandra’s childhood was enhanced by her extraordinary imagination as well as the imagination of those around her. Her love of art was evident in many aspects of her creative nature. As an adult, she pursued a career in interior design and formed her own business. She married her high school sweetheart, Alan Alderman and had three children.  Tales of Ireland inspired her to create a country home reminiscent of her heritage. It is this home that sets the stage for her series.

    Her children loved to hear stories of her childhood adventures, and when the grandchildren came along they were no different.  At that point, she decided to write these stories and adventures, so they could be shared with other children—thus starting the adventures of the Three Little Lasses. “The Secret in Nana’s Garden” and “The Magical Tea Party” allows the reader to experience the feeling of Nana’s country home and land. The imagination of the children and things they discover will make you yearn for more.
