About the author:
J. W. Keleher lives in a quiet town in north central Pennsylvania. He has no children and isn't married. He doesn't have any pets and only a few plants.
His desk window catches sun and moon rises; it also looks out on the labyrinth below. He tries to keep his desk top clean but often fails.
He is happiest when combining travel, mystery, adventure and writing. He chased after mermaids in Scotland and followed in the tracks of Sherlock Holmes last summer. The summer before he researched the connection between Morgellons Disease and mercury exposure in London and the Languedoc Province of France. His summers are never dull.
He is known as a writer, teacher, archaeologist, and artist. He enjoys physical activities in nature. He likes clean air and water. He thinks coffee is his only vice.
Grandpa and the Christmas Crib
Mateusz and his grandfather decide, one wintry day in Krakow, Poland, to begin the creation of a traditional Christmas crib (a manger scene set in a model based on one or more of Krakow's historic buildings). The boy is the artist and works on the design, while Grandpa focuses on the model construction. Mateusz abandons the project after Grandpa's unexpected death. Grandma's wishes and Grandpa's words of, "Always finish what you begin" rekindle the construction and completion of the award winning Christmas Crib.
