Fields Cape Cod,
I never thought of myself as a writer, but always as a communicator. Writing is a tool of communication, so putting thoughts into words comes naturally. I write from the heart, from the truth within. I write about lessons learned through the lens of everyday life experiences, sharing heartfelt, funny and sometimes thought-provoking views from where I stand and have stood in this journey so far. In 2019 my memoir was released: CHOICES - One Mother's Determined Search for the Supports to Meet the Needs of Her Aging Autistic Son. By day, I work with special needs students at the local middle school, each day knowing that learning comes from the student as well as from staff (if we pay attention and I do). And last, but not least, I gratefully continue to live in my Habitat for Humanity Home on Cape Cod. Truly a sacred place.
