About the Author

Patricia Sluder Davidson resides in Salt Lake City, Utah, and is the creator of Cherished Connections. Pat has created a very special connection with her three beautiful grandchildren in writing and illustrating books together to be shared between children and adults. Her journey started when she found herself as a long distance grandma.

"I wanted to inspire and create a way for adults and children to have stronger relationships when separated, but I couldn't find what I was looking for. That's how I was inspired to create Cherished Connections... and so it began."
