Front Page » Jacinta Faber
The youngest of twelve children, Jacinta Faber was born in Poughkeepsie, New York, and studied ancient history and Greek and Latin classical literature at Vassar College. Speaking both English and Portuguese as a child, Jacinta was named by her Portuguese-born parents in recognition of St. Jacinto Marto, the young visionary of Our Lady of Fatima from the village of Aljustrel, adjacent to the ancient ruins of the cultural center of Fabera.
Following college, Jacinta served for two years in the Indonesian wetlands as a Peace Corps volunteer, helping to build a new public shoe factory and dig individual water wells for exiled farming families. Later marrying Dr. Hemis Horsely, a prolific gadget inventor from New Zealand, the two settled on a small farm near Minburn, Iowa, where they have been raising buckwheat, peacock and ostrich, as well as their nine children. Jacinta also freelances as an automotive mechanic.
A strong advocate of all forms of wind power, Jacinta and her father have recently developed and patented a small car, named Rongo, that uses only the wind as a power source. (OK, as you suspect by now, none of this is true about Jacinta, but, see, she hasn't written her bio yet!)
She also writes at EverydayCitizen.com.
