There Will Be Champagne Tonight!

I just got word that Boston’s venerable Beacon Press has agreed to publish my anthology on parenting disabled children. I AM SO HAPPY!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks to those of you who participated in my straw poll a few weeks ago. I believe your comments may have helped tip the scales.

For those of you just tuning in, I have spent the last few years working on an anthology of creative writing – fiction, poetry, nonfiction – on parenting children with special needs. My intention is to show life as it really is – the good, the bad, the ugly, the beautiful – and to make the case that the lives of families of the disabled are worthy of literature. This is not a book of inspirational pieces for the parents of the disabled. It’s a collection of wonderful stories, essays and poetry that happen to be about parenting disabled children.

I will keep you posted!

  1. What wonderful news! I read your blog most days, and was thrilled to hear of the publication.
    Consider yourself the recipient of a virtual pat on the back!

  2. Congratulations! I am the mother of a child with profound disabilities, and I look forward to reading your book when it comes out!
