FASD VOICES

New Book: FASD VOICES

I am writing a new book titled (tentative) FASD VOICES, as I want to bring the voices of individuals with FASD, their caregivers, siblings, caseworkers and anyone else involved with FASD, to the global forefront. I have written two FASD memoirs Two Decades of Diapers, and, Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, The Teen Years. I also created the Strawberry & Cracker, Twins with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, picture book series. 

The response so far regarding FASD VOICES has been positive and I hope to continue that momentum. So, if you are a person involved with FASD in any way, and would like your voice to be included in FASD VOICES, please use my contact page in the MENU bar and I will send you details. 

This book will make an excellent handout at FASD conferences, FASD presentations, to politicians, medical personnel, FASD caseworkers, teachers, etc., but it can’t be written without YOUR help. I need to hear your FASD experiences, challenges, struggles, hopes, prayers, positive and cherished moments of FASD, vents, needs, wishes, etc.  If you have an anecdote, comment, thought, idea, or any other voice you want heard, please contact me.

Pieces should be 50-500 words. Don’t worry if you have never written anything before. I want to keep it raw. Only your first initial of your name, and your province, state, county etc, will be shared. When complete, FASD VOICES will be available from Amazon. There is no pay-out to participants as all profits will go toward printing costs for books to be handed out at presentations. 

ASK YOURSELF — WHAT DO I WANT THE WORLD TO KNOW ABOUT FASD?

PLEASE CONTACT ME IF INTERESTED!

For over twenty years, I have parented four grandchildren with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome: a disorder caused by prenatal exposure to alcohol. Please read of our family struggles and challenges at http://www.challengedhope.com. My two ebook memoirs available on Amazon titled: Two Decades Of Diapers, and, Fetal Alcohol Syndrome: The Teen Years, describe the struggles my grandchildren and I experienced during their youth and teenage years. I have also written fiction, including a six-book English seaside series, titled, Under the Shanklin sky. I am now embarking on a new adventure creating children's picture books, designed specifically with kids with FAS in mind. The two main characters of the book are Strawberry & Cracker, twins with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome. The first titled The School Day focuses on the special supports the twins need at school for a successful outcome. The book is due out in the fall of 2017, to be followed by more in the series, all focused on the daily challenges faced by children with FAS.
