About

Grace Grogan

Bio: As a child, Grace Grogan had a love of reading, writing and history. In her adulthood, those interests expanded to include photography, scrapbooking and genealogy. When her children were young, she did a “Grogan Gossip” newsletter that was mailed to family and friends on a regular basis. Now that her children are grown she only does a Christmas newsletter, but a copy of each issue is kept in a notebook and serves a record of her children’s lives growing up and now her own life, a “genealogy in the making.” Grace completed a course with the Institute of Children’s Literature on writing magazine articles for children when her children were still young. After moving to St. Clair County in 2004 Grace joined the St. Clair County Family History Group where she served as newsletter editor of Blue Water Family Backgrounds from 2009 to 2018. It was her position as newsletter editor that led to the birth of the “Who Am I?” column on genealogy in 2011 for The Lakeshore Guardian. In 2014 Grace became an opinion columnist for The Times Herald in Port Huron and that same year started her blog, “Life is a Melting Pot.” Grace regularly attends the Freelance Marketplace Writer’s Group in Rochester, Michigan and is working on writing a book regarding her family’s involvement with CPS and their impact on her and her husband’s attempt to adopt their grandchildren. In addition to writing, Grace is President of the Blue Water Shutterbug Camera Club in Port Huron and is owner of Times Gone By Photography. Grace sells her artwork at Studio 1219, the Knowlton Ice Museum, Everything Classic Antiques, and on Fine Art America, where she maintains an account of her own photographs plus an account of her deceased husband, Ron Grogan’s, photos. Grace went back to college in 2010 and obtained an Associate Degree in Business with a major in paralegal. She works full time at Gerry Mason Law Offices, PLLC in Marysville, Michigan.
