Aphasia Awareness is my passion. “Sharing experiences Knowledge is Power” my radio show on TOGINET [Thursdays @ 11am EST] allows me to connect with millions of people and I am grateful for the opportunity. Aphasia is a very difficult and frustrating condition. Last week I spoke about the symptoms of a stroke, the differences between the right and left side of the brain and diminished abilities after a stroke. Also I spoke about Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences.
Exciting News I am in talks to develop a device to help speaking easier.

While I was at the New England Book Festival awards ceremony I noticed my book on a Table of Honor. Can you say surprised? After inquiring why I was told my book placed in the London Book Festival. Quote: You cannot belong to the Table of Honor unless you placed in an accredited international competition. Accordingly these books are the best of the best, certified by judges to be worthy of a reader. publishers and libraries.
The London Awards ceremony is January 25,2014 in the Royal British Library. I am so overwhelmed. Never in my dreams did I think my book would be an award-winning book. Mom is my angel watching over me.
I am just back from the New England Book Festival held at the Omni Parker Hotel in Boston. It was a day of meeting new author, discussion groups and panel groups. It was extremely interesting and enlightening. The awards were held in the room President John F. Kennedy announced his presidential run. It gave me chills to be in that room and the history in that room. As we received our awards we were asked to give a speech on what inspired you to write your book. Known as the woman who moves her hand when she speaks, I made the choice to illustrate my aphasia – unexpectedly I received a standing ovation. It was an evening filled with publishing passion, vision, humility. courage and spectacular plans for the future.
During the day I mat Alicia Young author of “Savvy Girl’s Guide to GRACE” she was a wonderful person and wrote a “Charming and lighthearted” book according to Sandra Day O’Connor, US Supreme Court Justice (ret). I am reading it now and totally agree.
