About the author
I wrote this book about a year after the death of my mother. I don't know why it took me so long-the story was there-it just needed to come out, I guess. It was during a 3am couldn't sleep night when the script just came to me. There's a sort of closure for me in this book, I believe.
I am Nana to 6 wonderful, amazing grands. My 3 daughters have blessed me with 4 grandsons and 2 granddaughters-ranging in age from 9-1 year at the time of publication. They are my world.
My mother was more than just my mother. Besides being "Grandma", she was my champion, my drinking buddy, my best friend. When she passed away, she left a hole in me that will never, ever, fill. I miss her more than I ever thought possible.
But this book is not just about my mother. It's about both of my grandmother's-the original Nana, and Ma. It's a compilation of stories about me and my relationship with my grands, and the relationships with some of my aunts, some of my sisters with me and their grands.
It's my first children's book-hopefully won't be my last.
