John and Martha Storey,
Authors, Cooks, Founders, Gardeners & Massachusetts Residents

John and Martha Storey founded Storey Communications, Inc. in 1983. Storey's Basic Country Skills has no one specific author, it is a compilation of the best of Storey's projects, plans, and sage advice. John and Martha's experience rings loud and true throughout the book. Their vision, combined with the editorial expertise of Deb Burns (also a Storey author!) brought this treasury of country wisdom to fruition.

Martha also lent her party-planning advice to Keeping Entertaining Simple. She has mastered the art of relaxed hostessing, whether giving small dinner parties for close friends or large corporate picnics, and she shares her secrets and inspiring ideas with readers. John and Martha have three children and five grandchildren. They live in western Massachusetts.
