To Be Heard

Shortly after I decided to write Live Like Sean, I was asked by Sean's best friend Bobby Fredericks if an audio version of the book would be available. Honestly, the thought had not occurred to me as I was so focused on my grief and my ability to get my thoughts down on paper (with my co-author Theresa DiGeronimo's help, of course). However, the more I thought about it, I knew we absolutely needed to create [...]

Living & Loving in 2022

Many say a new year brings new beginnings and new opportunities. I am very excited about what is in store for me in 2022, but it is certainly bittersweet. Each new year is one year more that Sean is not with us. Last year at this time, I was preparing for the launch of Live Like Sean: Important Life Lessons from My Special-Needs Son, my memoir to my son, who I still miss so much every [...]

This week I celebrated my birthday

This week, I celebrated my birthday. I am always grateful to have another trip around the sun, but this year, I was more reluctant to celebrate it publicly. With Live Like Sean's release, I have had the great opportunity to tell Sean's stories to so many. Each time I recount a memory, it brings both a smile and a tear. I have been sharing many of these memories on social media and in the promotion of [...]

Live Like Sean Is an Amazon Best Seller

Sean loved sports. He never let us leave a game early. Despite not being able to read or add, he always knew which team was leading and how many more points his team needed to clinch the win. Sean was thrilled when his teams would make the Top 25 rankings. I am sure he is smiling down on us now, knowing that in less than 48 hours after his book's wide distribution, Live Like Sean became an [...]
