Kudos to my 14-year-old computer whiz grandson

 Ryan and computer

I am so incredibly proud of my eldest grandson, Ryan. The story of his accomplishments as a self-taught computer whiz has just appeared on the front page of the Catholic Sentinel (in Portland). His Space Bandit app for Apple is entirely his own creation from the art work to the music to the programming and is selling all over the world. I have enjoyed helping him debug the program on visits in the past. He will graduate in a month from the 8th grade and his proud Grandma Karen will be right there. He is also an avid reader. Those of you who are writing YA fiction are writing for the young people of his generation and need to keep on your toes to keep up with their young inventive minds.
