CLP Book Review: Giving Myself Away

Adrienne is a divorced mother of two, who had an unfortunate one-night stand with her friend George.  It’s unfortunate because she isn’t really “into” George and she ends up pregnant – at forty-two!  Adrienne tells George, who readily asks her to get married, but she refuses.  Adrienne’s still feeling bruised by the failure of her first marriage, to a man she was in love with, so the prospect of marriage to a friend who sometimes annoys her doesn’t seem too promising.  Read the rest of the review at Chick Lit Plus.


World Autism Awareness Day


As I stated in an earlier post, April is Autism Awareness Month, but April 2nd is World Autism Awareness Day.  To be honest, I don’t know why we have both, but we do.  I was contacted by the Huffington Post to answer the questions, “What is autism?” and “What is autism not?”   Needless to say, I was very psyched to be selected.  Double score, since they also picked Barrett’s picture to be published – because, of course, he’s gorgeous.  You can read the article on the Huffington Post Parent’s page.  I loved reading the thoughts of other parents.  We are not alone!
