I have been writing and editing books professionally since 1980. My credits include four national or international best-sellers and span genres, from celebrity memoir to self-help.
A few years after our son's ASD diagnosis, I began my "second" career as a licensed behavior analyst, specializing in children with autism spectrum disorder and other disabilities. I also wrote two highly acclaimed books for parents, teachers, and other professionals on the subject.
Through those years, I never stopped loving books or really "left" book publishing. There has always been a book in some form waiting on my desk at home. I have written, cowritten, ghostwritten, line edited or copyedited best-selling titles for major New York publishers.
