About Helen Foster James
I'm the author of Grandma Loves You!, Grandpa Loves You!, Mommy Loves You!, and Auntie Loves You! That's a whole lot of love. Daddy Loves You! will be published in 2020 and Welcome to the World will arrive in the world in the fall of 2020. I'm currently working on a nana book.
One of my newest books is With Love, Grandma. It's a picture book told in letters from grandma to her little grandchild. The grandma is a hedgehog and has an adorable van to travel the countryside.
I love holidays and have published two Christmas books: Santa's Christmas Train and Grandma's Christmas Wish.
My book, Daddy's Girl, showcases a girly, girl throws a tea party for her daddy.
I'm the author of S is for S'Mores: A Camping Alphabet. I started researching the book when I was four years old--when I went on her first camping trip! Since that time, I have been on more than one hundred camping trips including backpacking down (and up!) the Grand Canyon, hiking to the top of Sierra Mountain passes, and canoeing down the Colorado River. I even met my husband on a camping trip to Catalina Island.
I am also the author of E is for Enchantment: A New Mexico Alphabet (published by Sleeping Bear Press) illustrated by Neecy Twinem. I received a WILLA Literary Finalist award for the book from Women Writing the West. The book was named to the Land of Enchantment Booklist for 2006-2007 and selected by the New Mexico Library Association as their "Legislative Gift Book" for 2007.
I'm a former educator serving as an elementary teacher, coordinator of library media services, elementary teacher, media specialist, and as a professor of children's literature. I received my doctorate in Educational Administration from Northern Arizona University. I recently received an award from the California Reading Association for my contribution to literacy.
I'm a native San Diegan. My home is in Pacific Beach and I have a cabin in the San Diego mountains where I can hear coyotes serenade the moon. I enjoy watching raccoons, woodpeckers, wild turkey, deer, fox, and other wildlife outside my cabin's windows.
When I'm not camping, hiking, and hanging out on Sail Bay in San Diego, you can find me reading, writing, watching movies, and planning my next travel adventure.
