Found this story about a mid-Michigan grandma who writes kid's books in this morning's Lansing State Journal. Janet Sinke is a 54-year-old former hospice nurse who believes that her disease is the best thing that ever happened to her. It led her to these special books about the all-important grandparent-grandchild relationship.
She has a special view of life and the circumstances that everybody faces at one time or another. Her books are self-published and available at Barnes and Noble.
