Happy 125th Birthday, Grandma!
It's hard to believe that today, my grandmother would have been 125 years old — July 9, 1893. She's left us 22 years ago at 103, and I miss her everyday.
If you've read my book, AMAZING GRACIE, you'd know my grandmother was a veritable phoenix, on one hand, rising up from the ashes life had dealt her. And on the other hand, she was like a human feline with her multiple lives: Gracie Dodson, the beloved daughter; Mary Josephine, the abandoned child; Mary Dodson, the young maid; Grace Dawdson, the metamorphosed debutante; and finally, Gracie Haibach, the refined matriarch & sophisticate.
Through it all, my grandmother surely lived up to her name — meeting life’s setbacks and challenges with grace and tenacity. She will always be, in my mind, truly amazing. Happy Birthday!

My journey into writing AMAZING GRACIE was very much like fitting the pieces of a puzzle together to finally reveal the hidden truth. A stunning portrait of a young girl who survives the shocking destruction of her poor-yet-loving family, and rises to become a woman of strength, courage, tenacity.
