Gladys Cabot: The Last Adventure
Besides walking around the city, she also went adventuring around the world, usually as part of some noble cause. So she was kind of a Mother Teresa type. Though perhaps the most giving thing she does is come home to take care of her eight-year-old niece after Emma's parents are killed.
When I was revising the first story, I put in a little bit of that background from the second story in. Though in this first story Gladys isn't all that important because she's suffering from severe dementia and confined to the nursing home.
Here's a fun fact for you: If you look at the picture of Gladys and then the one of Emma, the face and hair are identical. When I made Gladys I just took Emma and aged her a little. The reason is that Gladys and Emma are supposed to look very similar, so that often people thought Gladys was really Emma's mother. But she's not; it's just a family resemblance.
