E. D. Arrington
E. D. Arrington, affectionately called Lois by many, is the fourth of seven children.
She was raised on a farm in rural Greene County, North Carolina by her grandparents, Tom and Eva Brown Arrington, until their deaths. After graduating from T. C. Williams High School (school of the Titans) in Alexandria, Virginia, Arrington pursued her higher education at local colleges and universities and lived, and worked in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area.
After a twenty-five year career at the National Education Association, she returned to North Carolina and pursued the craft of writing.
She says that any measure of success she has enjoyed is credited to her maternal grandparents, Tom and Eva Brown Arrington, who adopted and raised her until their deaths. Their relentless mantra; "Don't ever stop learning", kept her grounded, inspired, and pointed her in the right direction in spite of life's steep hills and deeper valleys.
