Elbert County, Georgia
of Flora Janie Bond Fowler
June lives in north Florida with Don Carlson, her husband of over 60 years. They are the parents of
three sons, including twins. Their sons and daughters-by-grace have blessed them with ten
grandchildren and to date twelve great-grandchildren.

She and her husband have always enjoyed traveling and over the years have visited all fifty states. They
have lived in Georgia, South Carolina and north and south Florida.

Since Don’s retirement they spend part of the summer in their RV traveling the country and visiting
friends and relatives. When home they enjoy entertaining and are active in their church.

June was born and reared in Elberton, Georgia. She attended LaGrange College in LaGrange, Georgia.
She worked as a bookkeeper for the local Ford Motor Company and as a legal secretary before
marriage. She and Don moved to Rome, Georgia, in 1956, where Don worked as a software engineer for
General Electric and June continued as a legal secretary for a law firm there.

It was not until their move to Gainesville, in 1972, that June formed a writer’s group and was published
in Christian magazines and devotionals. At that time the children were high school age and she
returned to work as a bookkeeper, and subsequently she and her husband opened a bookkeeping and
computer consulting firm.

When their business merged with a CPA firm June retired and enjoyed attending writer’s conferences
to improve  her writing abilities.

Following a move to south Florida, in 1993, June’s first book, “I Kissed the Face of God,” was published.

Returning to Gainesville in 2013, she once again became active in the writer’s group, Word Weavers,
that meets in her home.

In 2017 she published her mother’s memoirs, “Elbert County, Georgia, Reminiscences of Flora Janie
Bond Fowler.”
