Here We Are, a family history by Debbie Koch Kirsch
My experience working with Linda Parke
Feedback on the book continues to be so positive. My neighbor is a graphic designer and she was so impressed. Family members who preordered the book, sight unseen, were delighted with the quality and design. I am so very happy. The book you designed truly fulfills the image I had for it.

About the Author
Debbie Koch Kirsch was born in New Jersey in the midst of the boisterous Ussher family. The daughter of Edith Ruth Ussher, the seventh child of Ethel Anna Jensen and John William Ussher, Debbie grew up knowing her grandmother Ethel Anna and her many aunts, uncles and cousins.
Debbie began researching her maternal family history as a hobby more than thirty years ago listening to family stories, traveling to visit towns and cities with connections to the family, and seeking out extended family members. After retiring from her career in education as a teacher and elementary school principal, Debbie decided the time was right to synthesize the information she had collected into this book to share with others.
She and her husband Bob relocated from New Jersey to Bluffton, South Carolina in 2015, building a house overlooking a lake and nature preserve. When not researching and writing, Debbie enjoys kayaking on the lake, observing the herons and egrets from her chair on the dock, and staying in touch with family.
