Archibald Perry has a problem…he can’t get Granny to stop snoring. He finds a solution that works for him, but not for his chickens. Now they have a problem too. Little do they realize that problems are sometimes blessings in disguise. As for Granny, she doesn’t know the effect she has on others, or that she is a hero.

 Please note: This was the original cover when my book was first published. Later, it became necessary to change printers and the cover. See new cover below.



Granny Louise is known by everyone in this small fishing village. She works hard and serves her community well. She is happiest when others are happy too.

Granny Louise plans a surprise for her hungry customers and is disappointed when they complain. She patiently works hard to please everyone…but even her patience has a limit. Come along and meet Granny Louise
