Announcing the new children’s book, “Grace, The Guardian Angel”

Children’s books just in time for Christmas are a nice gift for children of reading age. Grace, The Guardian Angel is a simple but powerful children’s story about patience, faith, hope, love, and kindness.

Eva, my eldest granddaughter, inspired the character Grace through one of her drawings. She was six years old when she designed Grace. Mia, Eva’s younger sister, created the Mom in the story. Their initial idea gave me the energy to write, illustrate, and publish this book. I hope kids all over the world will like Grace. This book is a collaboration between grandkids and their Lolo (grandfather).

While I spent much time writing project controls and risk-based management books, illustrating and developing this book for children gives me a distinct feeling of satisfaction. Well, after all, developing and publishing a book is still project management. Both the Kindle E-book and Paperback are now live in the Amazon store. Please share the links provided in the article with friends and people you know.

Autumn, a time for reflection…

Today’s reflection…
