WELCOME to my FASD blog!
For over twenty years, I have parented grandchildren with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS) and written two memoirs on my experiences. Two Decades of Diapers describes my early childhood, my daughter’s teen pregnancy, and the self-doubt and predicaments I faced during my grandchildren’s toddler and early school years. My second memoir titled Fetal Alcohol Syndrome: The Teen Years takes the reader on my emotional journey through the critical times of my grandchildren’s FAS teenage years. Both memoirs are available from AMAZON and are suitable reading for those wanting to understand the experience of raising children with FAS.
My Children’s Book
I am currently creating a children’s FAS picture book series titled, Strawberry & Cracker, Twins with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome. The first in the series The School Day is now available on AMAZON in print or ebook format.
Just a few people who love Strawberry & Cracker.
Illustrator, Heather Lamb, loves Strawberry and Cracker, too! Heather’s illustrations of the children’s book are stunning. She brings life to my characters! Here she is in her design studio creating the illustrations, and then with the finished product.
I have also written fiction, including a six-book English seaside series titled, Under The Shanklin Sky; set in the town of Shanklin on the Isle of Wight. All are available from AMAZON.
Under the Shanklin sky, English seaside six-book series, by Barbara Studham. Available from AMAZON.
