In 45 days, I will finally be able to say that I'm a published author. And I'm so excited.

Five months ago, I experienced three tragic things to happen in my life. I lost my dream job at Google, found myself at the Mandalay Bay on the night of the Las Vegas shooting (he was shooting directly above us) and then I lost my best friend, Ms Bonnie. All three of these things happened within a three-week period. I was devastated to say the least.

But something beautiful happened! I ended up writing my first book about my autism journey in raising my son Cameron, who has Asperger's Syndrome. Being forced to navigate the world of Autism was one of the hardest things I ever had to face. But Cameron not only survived, he thrived. Cameron graduated from High School last June and is now attending college. He has become this smart, confident young man who refuses to be labeled by his autism. I couldn't be more proud.

You can meet him tomorrow during my Facebook Live where I'm going to briefly interview him. He told me, “ Mom, keep it short! “ 😝
