Claire is perhaps the most humble woman I know. She’s a mother of four, a fabulous gluten-free chef and oh yeah she’s the author of six books, including Overcoming Autism: Finding the Answers, Strategies and Hope That Can Transform a Child’s Life, a book that’s been incredibly useful to me in understanding the journey of a number of my mom friends. She’s also a fellow Jane Austen fanatic and she tends to feed my family on Thanksgiving.
For a chance to win a copy of her latest, leave a comment here and let me know that you went and joined Claire’s Facebook fanpage. If you want to be entered twice, come meet me at Vroman’s in Pasadena this Saturday at 5pm to see her read from it. Here’s the description of the book from the Vroman’s website:
Punky, tattooed Rickie’s life takes a turn for the worse when she ends up pregnant at 18. By the time her son Noah is in the first grade, she’s dropped out of school and moved back home, where she lives with her wealthy parents and sends Noah to the same upscale private school she attended. When Noah comes home complaining about the gym teacher, Rickie storms into his office to set him straight but she also finds something she didn’t expect, which slowly but surely changes her life.
