Facing Forty Upside Down 

Facing fears and aging gracefully (most of the time!).  Learning at midlife things I was too chicken to learn as a kid.  Like this:Adventures in parenting and teaching children with special needs.  And finding peace in a crazy life.  Excerpted in Good Housekeeping Magazine and a Top 25 Funny Mom on Circle of Moms. Come join the fun!

I just finished writing my first book!  SOME NERVE: Lessons Learned While Becoming Brave will be published by Riverhead Books/Penguin Fall 2013
