Different is the second book in the series, “Life Lessons with Little LeaLea.” Writing this book was a very personal undertaking. The two main characters, Sean and LeaLea, are cousins who also happen to be my grandchildren.
Although apprehensive at first, through a growing relationship with her cousin, Sean, who has autism, conveyed through several true and humorous events, LeaLea finds both the difficulty and delight in doing so.
My intention as an author was to encourage children to make a difference by taking the time to understand and accept others who seem different into their lives. I believe I met that objective. As I started to write, however, the grandmother in me began to experience the bitter-sweetness of it all. I soon understood my true mission in writing this book is as a tribute to my wonderfully different and unique grandson, Sean Michael Faust.
