Marnie Hill wrote the book, Daddy's Blue Eyes, following the death of her son-in-law Matthew Leslie. He left behind a young wife and two daughters.

A professional communications specialist, Marnie was coping with her own grief while also looking for a way to help her granddaughters to understand their dad's passing. By writing this book, her goal is to also offer parents, grandparents, teachers and caregivers a way to gently start a conversation with young people about grief.
