My memoir of my grandmother was just published in the “Dear Nana” book. There are 39 other authors besides myself included in this “must read” book. Why I refer to it as that is because it is a fantastic tribute to all grandmothers no matter what there title is. Grandchildren that have had such special grandmothers are indeed very fortunate. Many of us have passed down experiences that we have learned from these special ladies. The book is for sale at Amazon.com.
I am one of the lucky forty writers who has had their Nana/Grandmother essay published in the “Nana” book. An ebook and a print book are both for sale on Amazon.com and it has already received one review of five stars.
Here is a little summary from the editor “Dear Nana: Grandmother Tales of Love, Secrets and Going Home is a collection of 40 unusual, true life stories from writers around the world about an incomparable relationship.”
There are 143 pages and well worth the read. Check it out!!

through the hazed window
at an overcast sky
hiding a dull gray lake.
Mountains and trees, enshrouded in fog,
invisible behind endless rain.
Trenches open in spring grass
causing rivulets of pain
She waits patiently at the window
reflecting on former days hidden
from sunshine –
dark days like today.
I’ve included a photo that I took of the cover and I hope you find it appealing. When it is ready I will post an announcement. It is being published by Kelsay Books and it contains both poems and a few photos. This publisher has a great reputation and I’m honored that she decided to publish mine.
Yesterday there was a lovely article written by a talented journalist. She had interviewed me about the book “Read It Again”.
I was pleased to have made the paper and to promote the children’s book.
Whenever we writers can get our name recognized it continues to spur us on our literary journey.
There are 20 stories for children of all ages. My story is “Carla the Little Red Hen”.
I hope to have copies of the book for sale on my blog but you can purchase the book from Alfie Dog publishers in England or from Amazon.com after the 18th of this month.
It’s available for downloading or paperback.
