Gena Cooke is a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators and is currently living in Boston, Massachusetts.
Gena is a two-time cancer survivor and in between her diagnoses gave birth to her son Chad. Gena was inspired to write 'Santa Gets Help for Christmas' in parallel with her second victory over cancer and her son’s first Christmas. Gena wanted to be sure Chad did not find out the sometimes painful way some children, like herself, learn about the parental or guardianship role in gift giving at Christmas. She wrote, “Santa Gets Help for Christmas” to gently explain and introduce their roles.
Gena thanks God for blessing her with her son and she also thanks her family and friends for their support.
Gena trusts you will find “Santa Gets Help for Christmas” a helpful tool for you and your child.
