About the Author:
If there was one Christmas gift that author Norman J. Santos would ask for, it would be to see himself, his brother and his sisters being delivered from their parents. He wants to see the joy on his parents' faces and the pride in their hearts as they provided the journeys of life to each member of his family. They guided and loved them throughout all of their individual and collective lives to some pretty terrific destinations.
Through the story of Helper, Santos honors his dad's memory. His father and mother did not graduate from elementary or high school, but their love and hard work helped pave the way for Santos' brother's rise to the Mayor of San Leandro, his sister Arline's retirement as a successful Telephone Company manager, his sister Jeanette's talented singing voice as well as being a mother of six, and for himself, the author of this book. Inspiration for Helper came from the love and peace his family has given him.
Readers might find Santos, his wife, two daughters, and four grandchildren strolling around Santa's Village. He loves them all and is extremely proud of all their accomplishments. They are all fabulous helpers.
Helper is a 162-page paperback with a retail price of $14.00. The ISBN is 978-1-4809-3200-5. It was published by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
