The Red Velvet Bag: Jason My Special Angel
by Lynn Billingsley-Dulan
About the author
My name is Lynn Victoria Billingsley-Dulan. I was born in Honolulu, Hawaii in 1947. My age group is known as the “Baby Boomers”! My father was a sailor! I was taken away several times by relatives and ended up in the Mainland being raised by my grandmother. I helped her take care of her mother until she passed. I had many interests throughout my life. The old saying, “A Jack of all trades and a master of none,” comes to mind. It fits me. I lived on a farm for six years and learned about hard work, plus animals. Later, I worked in two zoo’s! My grandmother showed me how to sew. I sew, paint and draw some. I never thought of myself as a writer, but I have a lot of writings. Some are like songs. Not to mention a variety of jobs through my life. But none as long and hard as caring for my son. I ended up dedicating the rest of my life to him and now I dedicate this book to his life!
