About the Author
Imagine two middle-aged African American women who are best friends, traveling worldwide to destinations that dazzle the eye and intrigue the mind. Picture your curiosity sparked as they discover people who invite you into their lives, traditions and cultures. These are the "Grannies on Safari." The "Grannies", Pat Johnson and Regina Fraser, have traveled to more than 80 countries over the last three decades. They ride elephants, camels and donkeys; look behind mysterious doors; and visit urban city centers and rural hamlets. Envision this duo, bringing the world up-close and personal in their syndicated television show in a way that is fun, fresh and unexpected. As "Grannies" Pat and Regina hope to share their love for travel, culture and art in their children’s books series, in a way that captivates audiences and broadens their appreciation for other cultures in today’s diverse and increasingly global community.
