About the Book

My grandpa, soon to be 98 years old, is an anomaly of sorts.  This attribute which leaves him somewhat undefinable, is actually revealing and telling of his personality.  In his quirkiness there is reason, and in his elusiveness there is explanation.  In this book, I share his affect on me, with you.  At times that affect provokes laughter, and at other times anguish. 

I wrote this book because Grandpa's story, or my story about him, should be told while he is still alive on this earth.  There was something inside of me beckoning me to write this book about him.  What started out as a passing fancy, turned into a need to illuminate the man behind this long-lived life.  

We all want a purpose in our lives, and mine for a year and a half was to get to the inner core of my grandpa's being, and to share that with you.  I hope I have done him justice.  Enjoy the story!       

About the Author

Christy is from San Diego, California where she is a golf instructor and certified personal trainer. 

This is her first book to be published.  Writing has been a passion of hers since she was a kid.  She feels this as a calling to express all those things in life that people normally don't get the chance to, as life keeps moving on.  Without wanting to let life pass her by, she feels a need to give it it's due respect and acknowledgement in words.  Thus, this is her form of an ode to her nearly 100 year-old grandpa.
