I am a cutting-edge author of nonfiction for a global audience. My title, a conundrum for most, The Joy of Down Syndrome is an education on laughing out loud, innocence and telling the truth. A collection of 29 short stories, in 27,000 words, written by a man who cheated his way through writing class in college and clearly needs an editor. I have raised 3 children, the youngest of whom happens to have Down Syndrome, and so am a qualified expert on the subject.
My acting career brought reviews in The San Francisco Chronicle, and SF Examiner, San Jose Mercury and Santa Cruz Sentinel; though rubbing folks neck & shoulders for one dollar, on the corner of Market and Montgomery made me a news item in Herb Caen, Daily Living, KGO Radio, San Francisco Magazine, The Chronicle and Examiner.
But that was long before retiring as a Financial Advisor in St. Louis.
The audience for my book would include anyone who read Tuesdays with Morrie.
