Growing up we shared a secret handshake, special names for one another, and even our own language.

Ours was a special relationship that wasn’t definable.

My Hero, My Ding tells the poignant story of my grandfather and I and the overwhelming bond we shared.

My hope is that everyone has at least one person that he or she can look up to, respect, and love!

***********************************************

“Why did you write this book?” is a common question that I am asked since my book’s release.  So, here’s a little extra about me.  My grandfather died suddenly when I was in my early twenties, and I took his death rather hard.  He was truly an anchor in the family.  I found it therapeutic to write down stories that I remembered about him and our time together.  I wrote on loose-leaf paper, typed some on the computer and generally had a pile of memoirs that I eventually stored in my closet.  Occasionally, I’d take them out and re-read them, and they never failed to bring a smile to my face.  Finally, I decided to put all these memories, stories, and antics together in a book and was thrilled when I found out it was going to be published.  I hope that the memories I have and the lessons I learned can be an inspiration to others.
