Blog for Celebrating Grandmothers

In late 2015, I started my own blog about Celebrating Grandmothers and related issues, which you can see here or by pressing the large W (for WordPress) on the left.

You will most of the articles and posts mentioned below on this site.

Other writings

I have been invited to write various guest posts and short articles on the subject of grandmothers in general and Celebrating Grandmothers in particular.  In addition, I have written guest posts on other issues, particularly aspects of writing and publicising books.  Other people have also written about the book.
