In Breakthrough Parenting for Children with Special Needs: Raising the Bar of Expectations, I share powerful stories about children with special needs to help foster greater awareness of their human value and untapped potential. I’m passionate about this subject! But as a writer who's published on many topics, I’m always ready for new inspiration, too.

If I blog about you, you’ll get a signed copy of Breakthrough Parenting! Come back often for regular updates and new inspiration—and maybe even a good joke or two. I love being a writer and speaker, because I get to share all your amazing life stories with the worldlucky me.
