Doreen Cox is a proud Mum and spirited Granny. The child of a British Air Forces officer, she saw a fair chunk of the world with her siblings. Born in Wiltshire, she has come full circle and now resides on the Dorset coast, where she lives a belly-laughter-life with her husband.
Doreen was inspired to write Granny Cool to create storybooks in which mixed heritage children, like her own, can see themselves reflected. Granny Cool also celebrates a growing generation of grannies who are young, energetic and defined by more than just their baking accomplishments!
A full-time radiologist, Doreen enjoys skimming stones, solving cryptic brain-teasers and landscaping the garden. Most of all, she loves it when her daughter and son-in-law take a much-needed break and drop the grandkids off at her doorstep.
About the Book

The heart-warming story depicts how through shared activities on a coastal holiday at granny’s house, two young children strengthen the bond between with their grandparents while at the same time learning more about their amazingly cool granny!!
Granny Cool provides a contemporary and much needed insight into a growing demographic of young grandparent, who commonly support families today.
This charming book is also a delightful celebration of mixed heritage families, currently under represented in children’s literature, who comprise an increasing proportion of our culturally rich and diverse nation.
