The Real Light Man

I recently released a children’s book entitled The Light Man. It was inspired by a man in Warner Robins Ga who, along with some of his neighbors, put on a spectacular lighting display every year at Christmas. You can read about that experience in my previous blog post Sept 4, 2014.

Anyway I had been asking around and digging around in old newspapers to find out who he was. I finally found out this man’s name was Jay Kohr. He passed away in 2002. You can check out his obituary here.

His son Pete shared this photo with me. It was great to know this book was well received by his family. It’s always good when a story I write resounds with someone other than myself.
