Anne Nichols ReynoldsANNE NICHOLS REYNOLDS is an award-winning author, educator, artist. archaeologist, and speaker.

All artifacts are donated to the Florida Museum of Natural History.

After serving three terms on the District Board of Trustees for South Florida State College, she retired and began writing novels.
