anthology announcement
friday, may 9, 2008

yes, yes, i know i got quiet again. i've actually been pretty busy, but that's for another entry. this entry is to announce the release of an anthology with one of my essays in it. :)


Voices of Autism, scheduled for release this month, received its first rave review from Library Journal:

The fifth entry in the Voices anthology project from the Healing Project, this work includes over 40 different stories and vignettes written by parents, teachers, and people with autistic spectrum disorders (ASD) that showcase how families and caregivers measure perseverance, understanding, and success. Many of the selections stand out, including an authorís account of her autistic son, a seventh graderís perspective on her two siblings with autism, a memoir by an adult with autism who relied on a tire advertisement to get through tough times, and an account of the challenges of dating an adult with Aspergerís. The bookís real strengths are the adult-penned passages, which will give readers a better sense of what autism truly is. Taken individually, the stories show glimpses of the impact that autism has on individuals and those they love. Taken collectively, they paint a rich landscape that many will find familiar. Highly recommended for public libraries and academic libraries with disability collections.

The anthology includes my essay "When Tears Fall", which shares the story and emotions of discovering my son's autism. You can read the unedited version on my son's blog here: When Tears Fall. Click the Next image link to read through (there's a total of 3 pages). While slated for June 1, the anthology is already listed as available on Amazon.com.
