About the Author
Carole P. Roman is former teacher turned businesswoman. She has successfully run a business with her husband that employs close to five hundred people. Her most favorite job is being grandmother to her two fairly new grandchildren. Her most favorite occupation has always been sitting in that big, cozy armchair next to a bed, reading a great story to someone she loves. Being with her grandchildren has awoken her spirit of the absurd as she goes on daily adventures with them to outer space, fashion shows under the sea, and of course, always back in time for dinner. Roman has two wonderful sons and hit the jackpot in the daughter-in-law department. She currently lives in New York with her husband of thirty-five years.
