About the Author

Helen Ellis is a New Zealand researcher, writer, anthropologist and a veteran of Distance Grandparenting. Three of her four children and five of her six grandchildren live 16 to 30 flight hours away in America, England and Scotland. In her research she asked the question: How is distance grandparenting for you? As a Distance Grandparent of more than 20 years, she has well and truly got the T-shirt. Her book, Being a Distance Grandparent - a Book for ALL Generations, combines that experience with her extensive global research. Helen feels passionately that Distance Parents and Distance Grandparents deserve a voice and has single-handedly and doggedly taken on that role. Her goal is to support each generation to understand how it is for the other. With understanding comes empathy and this can only do good as we all gingerly navigate the oftentimes challenging social phenomenon of distance families, she explains.


"Helen provides an in-depth and thoughtful look at what it feels like to be grandparenting from a distance. You will recognise yourself, your emotions and your story in this book - and when you have finished it, you are sure to feel less alone." Kerry Byrne, Ph.D. Founder of The Long Distance Grandparent"A masterful, fantastically well researched and well-written book." Pat Hanson, Ph.D. Author of Invisible Grandparenting"Helen, a seasoned distance grandmother herself, provides great tips, perspective, and a lot of empathy for anyone who is a global or distance grandparent." Emily Morgan Host of The Grand Life podcast"A must-read for each member of a distance family, a book you should read over and over again." Judit Vegh Intercultural Psychology Expert"Every distance family member (and the professionals supporting them) should read this book! It is the best gift you could offer somebody separated from their family." Isabelle Rampa Clinical Psychologist working with mobile families"This is a book I wish I could have put in my parents' hands and read myself when I found out I was pregnant." Sundae Schneider-Bean, LC Intercultural Strategist and Podcaster "This is going to be the book every international family didn't know they needed." Keri Bloomfield Author of Nothing like a Dane
