About Jeanne Ruczhak-Eckman

I am obsessed with genealogy and reading and lately better living in general. Writing has always been a sort of release for me.

I began writing in high school, with my work appearing in several local newspapers. I graduated Lock Haven University with a degree in Mass Communications (Journalism). After graduation, I came home, continued writing covering a variety of topics.

Over the years, my articles have been published in  Lancaster Farming; Heritage Quest Magazine; Ledger Newspapers (Solanco Sun Ledger, Parkesburg Post Ledger, Columbia Ledger); Lancaster Newspapers (Intelligencer Journal, New Era); Coatesville Daily Record; and the Village News.  I was also published online at Knoji (formerly Factoidz); eHow; LiveStrong; Online Community News (SolancoNews.com, PA Farm News); and Plan-and-Prep. I most recently wrote for Examiner.com, as the Lancaster Diabetes Examiner, the Lancaster Prepper Examiner, and Lancaster City Buzz Examiner.

In 2003, I started an online newspaper company, which had two newspapers, the PA Farm News and SolancoNews.com. The latter covered everything from hometown heroes and local sports to new businesses to the Nickle Mines Shooting.

There are still days I miss the deadlines and bylines. My days now are spent either working at Stauffers of Kissel Hill Nursery (a beautiful nursery and greenhouse in Lititz, PA) or doing genealogy work. I am also getting interested in better living through my new Fitbit obsession and Essential Oils.
