Abuse and abandonment are far too common in today's society. In her novel, Jeanne, author Sylvia Hornback explores the issues these victims face against the backdrop of a World War II setting. She discusses why she chose this time period, how her background in education and work with battered women contributed to the writing of Jeanne, and what she learned about the strong faith that has brought these victims through the most difficult of times.
Sylvia has extensive experience in the field of education. She served as an educator, principal and school superintendent for over two decades. Sylvia received her Doctorate of Education Administration from Texas A&M University and serves as the current Chair of the Board of Directors for ENERGY Worldnet, Inc. She was recognized as a National Blue Ribbon School Principal by the U.S. Secretary of Education.
For the past ten years, Sylvia has served as a Bible study teacher at First United Methodist Church near her home in Decatur, Texas. Her first novel, The Mallard Conspiracy, was published in 2018 and her most recent release is entitled Jeanne.
