For those of you who are looking for a book for your children or grandchildren don’t forget the “Dear Nana” book on Amazon.com.

Dear Nana is a book that we all can relate to. Women and men will enjoy reading the memoirs of the many talented writers that make up this book. It describes grandmothers, who are referred to, by a variety of names. These various memoirs depict grandmothers from all walks of life who made an impact on their grandchildren. They come in different sizes, shapes, and ethnic backgrounds but the one trait that ties them all together is the deep impression they have made on their grandchildren. These grandmothers have given of themselves and instilled their influence on their grandchildren for future generations.DSC_1084

Here’s Some Exciting News For Me

I just received an email from a publisher from Mauritius (an island in the Indian Ocean) that wants to publish one of my children’s short stories “A Silver Metal”. This story will be published in a text book for children 10 through 14 who are learning English. If any of you are familiar with this island is has a multicultural ethnic background where many speak French but the Government speaks English. It has ideal weather and it has wonderful beaches which makes it a tourist paradise.

I am thrilled and honored that they have selected my story for inclusion into their textbooks.

Summary of story:

“Well,” began Kevin, “it’s just that I’m not very good at anything.”  “Cheer up, son,” his dad told him as he patted him on the back. “You know about Albert Einstein. No one knew that he was special for a long time. George Bernard Shaw, the playwright, was an average student but he became very famous. Kevin, all children are special.”
