I did a really cool thing this week.
Actually, I did two cool things. First, I read an advance copy of Claire Hughes-Lynch's book Children With High-Functioning Autism: A Parent's Guide. Dr. Claire is a college professor of special education and is also the parent of a child with autism. She knows her stuff and she's lived her stuff.
Then, second - and this is the really cool part - I wrote a blurb for the book's back cover. I was extraordinarily flattered when Claire contacted me to ask if I'd be willing to consider it and was even more flattered once I'd read the book and discovered how terrific it is. The blurb wrote itself.
The two works - the book and its back cover - will be out in April.
