Things I do in my copious amounts of spare time...


Yep, I wrote a book, it's called "Which Bird Gets Heard? How To Have Impact Even In A Flock". That's a picture of the cover.
I am pretty psyched that it's finally available on Barnes and Noble as well as Amazon. It represents 4 years of Organizational Development research and much blood, sweat and tears. It's about presense and having more impact in life. It's positive and I hope humorous. It's not about CP though the principles in it can be applied in a helpful way if you happen to be raising a child with CP and other disabilities like me. Go figure.

Anywhooo. I wasn't sure I was going to mention it on this blog. But hey, you don't write a book every day do ya!


If you happen across it I hope you like it and find some use in it and any feedback you have will be greatly appreciated!

I am about to purchase this book! Thank you so much for writing it! I am the mother of an 18 year old male with cerebral palsy, who resides in a nursing facility. I am anxious to read it! I come to you via Katy at Bird On The Street on Blog Spot. She recommended you to me!

Becca- I hope you like it but be warned: It's not about CP at all or about raising Ellie. It's a leadership fable about how to have more impact in your life. It's based on years of research but has nothing to do with CP. Just want to make sure you know that so you are not mislead.

That said, if you still want to get it and read it, I would LOVE your feedback!
