I'm a speech-language pathologist, an author of children's books and a columnist in local newspapers throughout New York. My column focuses on educational issues, laws and parents' rights. I also launched an educational website as a resource for parents, teachers and youth. I am always looking for a new venue to advertise my books and website. It would be great to belong to this fine group of talented people and to make new connections! My education includes a BS degree in communicative disorders, a MS degree in speech-language pathology, a MS degree in multicultural education, and 30 additional graduate credits in educational administration. I love children and also work as an educational consultant.
My first book, "They Say I Have ADHD, I Say Life Sucks!" Thoughts From Nicholas, is about a little boy who has ADHD-attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and what a typical day is like for him at school. Readers view how the symptoms of ADHD follow a domino effect as Nicholas loses his homework, loses track of time, loses friends, is disorganized, gets sent to the principal's office, is clumsy, can't remain focused, gets little sleep and feels all around inadequate. He is followed by a comical clock companion who tries to keep him on target. This book is available at www.amazon.com and is also available in Spanish. My second book is about a little girl who stutters and my third book is set in a jungle. I self-published my first book however, I have a traditional publishing house here in NY who is interested in re-publishing my first book and publishing the other two. Feel free to contact me!
I apologize for the delay in response to your inquiry. I was working profusely on getting President-Elect Obama elected, and together -- YES WE DID!!! Hallelujah and Amen! ☺

I would love for you to help me to network. I am a registered nurse but took a leave of absence after my mother passed this summer at age 91 years. On my web site: www.charchet.com I tell about some of my family's story. However, I am the youngest African-American and person from KY who marched right beside Dr. Martin Luther King, JR in 1961 at age 13 yrs going to jail repeatedly for EVERYBODY'S RIGHTS. In KY we have 3.3 million people but only 17% have bachelors degrees and many do not read. My books sell better on the East Coast. I allowed my mayor to know this. He had my web host to design the latest note about "Good Morning America" with his high school friend, Diane Sawyer of Louisville, KY. I pray that I can sell more books around the USA, If you can help me to network--I will pay for your plane flight to Louisville, KY to sit with my family during the filming of a movie by Jerry Bruckheimer who helped Will Smith get started with his movie, "Bad Boyz". Jerry Bruckheimer has the most international movie tickets sold of any film producer. Also you may call me if you would like to or just e-mail me @ CHoll88317@aol.com I await your response.

MediaBistro's Morning Media Menu had a conversation with author Jamie Brenner about advice for writers looking to explore this newly crowded genre. An excerpt from Brenner: My first erotic novel came out two years ago. The landscape feels completely different. There is not just the hope to reach a mainstream audience with erotic novel, but the expectation that success is reaching everyone, not just the genre readers. Fifty Shades of Grey really raised the bar for that. At the same time, working…See More
