The highly anticipated sequel to "When Did I Meet You
Grandma?" is here "When Did I Meet You Grandpa?"
Who is more wonderful to a child than a grandpa? A child usually
understands that his/her parents have been there from the
beginning. On the other hand, a grandpa is often a little
more of a mystery. Where did this older version of my parents
come from? Was grandpa there from the beginning? Grandpas
come in all shapes and sizes.
"When Did I Meet You Grandpa?" is wonderfully
illustrated to depict all grandpas. A child asks the simple
question, "When did I meet you Grandpa?" setting
into motion the narrative which follows.
Some grandpas are modern and some are traditional. One thing
for sure is that all grandpas are important!
Included is a "my own Grandpa" page for a child
to record special information about his/her own grandpa.

I plan to share about the illustrations in each of my
books. As an artist, I can add meaningful elements that
don't detract from the author's story. For those of
you that purchase my "Grandpa" book, you can

things in my life:
