I love to write and I love to read. Making money as a writer is like winning the lottery, and that isn't my goal. Writing about what is important to me, making a difference in the way people see things, that is what matters to me. I have decided to price all of my books for free in hopes that more people read them. But please don't assume they aren't valuable simply because they are free. We are all in this journey together. If my thoughts and ideas help you, tuck them away, hold them close. And if they don't ring true to you, toss them back into the universe. There is a time and a place for everything. Thanks for reading. Take care on your journey.

Two thumbs up for this book. UNDER THE STARS is a beautiful story, one that I recomment to everyone. I knew very little about autism until I read this book and what an eye opener it has been.
Willow is an amazing mother of two children, Maisy, and Tommy. TOmmy is autistic. "Under The Same Stars" is about the struggles Willow's family goes through raising an autistic child, how they pitch in - or not - to help each other with every day activities, Tommy's therapies, errands, etc, the sacrifices they must make for Tommy's sake.
The story is very well told, through the eyes of this young mother. Make sure you have tissues handy because Willow will have you laughing and crying, at times simultaneously.
