Local author selects winner of essay contest
Seven year old Rodrika Plant, far left, a student at Lugoff Elementary School, received a copy of Grandmas Here by Sandra Thomas, also pictured. Plant also received a gift certificate for winning the essay contest hosted by Thomas.
The birth of her first granddaughter Delilah inspired Sandra Thomas, originally of Elgin, to write her first children’s book Grandma’s Here. Thomas said, "I was sitting at home recuperating from a knee surgery so I was able to spend more time with her and seeing her grow and get into stuff filled my heart." Thomas was compelled to write about Delilah.
