New! Why Grandma Doesn’t Know Me

Copyright 2021 by Abbie Johnson Taylor.

Independently published with the help of DLD Books.

Front cover image contains: elderly woman in red sweater sitting next to a window.

Sixteen-year-old Natalie’s grandmother, suffering from dementia and confined to a wheelchair, lives in a nursing home and rarely recognizes Natalie. But one Halloween night, she tells her a shocking secret that only she and Natalie’s mother know. Natalie is the product of a one-night stand between her mother, who is a college English teacher, and another professor.

After some research, Natalie learns that people with dementia often have vivid memories of past events. Still not wanting to believe what her grandmother has told her, she finds her biological father online. The resemblance between them is undeniable. Not knowing what else to do, she shows his photo and website to her parents.

Natalie realizes she has some growing up to do. Scared and confused, she reaches out to her biological father, and they start corresponding.

Her younger sister, Sarah, senses their parents’ marital difficulties. At Thanksgiving, when she has an opportunity to see Santa Claus, she asks him to bring them together again. Can the jolly old elf grant her request?

  2. Each participant will be allowed to do a brief presentation about themselves, what they do and how people may buy from or work with them in some way.
  3. After each presentation, the floor will be opened for questions from the audience.
  4. You the participant get to decide how you will present, what you might offer, Etc. Do you want to offer signed copies of your books? If yes, you’ll need to set a price including shipping to those who purchase copies from you. Do you want to offer a discounted or free eBook instead? Again, you’ll need to have a set price and know how that process works before the day of the event. Are you a business owner who offers a specific product or service? Want to offer a gift card or discounted price? Decide how that will work and you’re good to go. In short, whatever you want to offer is one hundred percent up to you.
  5. If you’re not for any reason able to attend, if you work out your details with me ahead of time, I will represent you. Guest participants may have me present on their behalf but the guest registration fee will apply.

***Event scheduling and structure Information.

  1. The event will begin promptly at 3 P.M. and the end time has been changed from 5 P.M. to 6 P.M. Eastern.
  2. Participants will need to gather 15 minutes early at: 2:45 P.M. Eastern for a quick organizational meeting.
  3. Rather than have specific time slots for everyone we’re going to go round robin style, which means I will do a brief opening and then go round the room one at a time allowing each person to present…

Thank you for your participation and have a great day.

After her mother finds out, their relationship is never the same again.
