I have been writing for many years, and I’m thrilled to have published my first book.
From Prompting to Shaping to Letting Go: My Love Affair With ABA and How Being a “Bad Mom” Helped My Daughter With Autism Succeed is a labor of love, and I am so happy that others will know about the journey my daughter and I took so many years ago. The road was not an easy one, and although we encountered many obstacles along the way, I knew that giving up was not an option. I am very proud of her, and she continues to amaze me.

In past lives I have been a proofreader, editor, newspaper reporter and columnist, newsletter writer for a wildlife organization and writer of one-act plays. I consider my six-year stint as a home-based behavioral program director in the ‘90s my most difficult, albeit important, job and am counting the days until all autism-related ABA therapy positions go the way of the dodo. Two of my short stories made it to the finals of the 2017 Florida Writer’s Association Royal Palm Literary Award Competition. See below for info about my first novel. My second novel, Island Times Three, is scheduled to be released in 2021.
My first novel, a chapter book entitled Elanora and the Salt Marsh Mystery, will be published soon. See the tab under “Books” to listen to an excerpt from Chapter 6.
