“Being a mother, I have read many picture books to my children. However, there were NONE that showed OUR family unit, a family with gay grampas. Working together with my father, Robert, we have taken a true story and turned it into a beautifully illustrated picture book.”

While raising her children, Julie noticed the lack of picture books depicting a family dynamic such as their family had. There were books about gay dads and moms, but none featuring gay grampas. Recognizing the need children have to connect with stories and see themselves in the pages, Julie and her father, Robert created their book.

Katy has Two Grampas is based on an event that happened to Julie's youngest daughters and features a cast of characters from the lives of Julie and her family.
