More About the Author
I'm available for both in-person and Skype bookclub appearances and would love to learn about YOUR story. Details on how to contact me at my website: www.kimstagliano.com.
My novel House of Cards is a fast paced, funny mystery infused with the vagaries of suddenly caring for two kids with autism. It's Romantic Suspense. Sort of like my life!
My Memoir All I Can Handle I'm No Mother Teresa is humorous look at a life that has been anything but ordinary or easy - and yet is full of laughter, joy and love. I promise, you won't need a Prozac to read it. :)
I'm Managing Editor of www.ageofautism.com, the nation's first daily web newspaper about the autism epidemic. I write for The Huffington Post, am on the editorial staff of the Autism File Magazine, and am a feature writer for Spectrum Magazine. I speak at national autism conferences, and have appeared on Good Morning America (with the kids!), ABC News, Fox News, in The Chicago Tribune, The National Catholic Register, and on blogs around the world.
Mark and I live in CT with Mia, Gianna and Bella.
Top Customer Reviews
I loved how Kim brought autism's day to day battles into the story without making it seem like an "autism book". I would absolutely recommend it to anyone, not just to autism mom's.
On a side note, I was impressed that as a "kindle first" book, it was well edited and not filled with typos. I read lots of "kindle only" books That are just filled with errors.
This is a great book with a great storyline, I will recommend it to all of my friends, even those not in the "autism" world. Great job Kim!
This author, with time, & more experience in this particular genre, could probably write a decent series. However, she cut off her story by wrapping it up in pink ribbons, so she would have to develop a different protagonist (hopefully, one w/out the propensity to barf so much), one who is both feisty & sustainable. The attempts at humor were heavy handed, & I hope in the future the humor will flow more naturally. I also hope future heroines will display some attributes that could reasonably appeal to future love interests.
I hate to complain so much since this book was a free offer, but I am still unhappy that I spent so much time slogging through bodily functions. I'd be willing to give this author another try, except she has enough writing experience so that this should have been a more polished effort (there were a few typos, but I'm talking about the writing, not the typing).
I look forward to the next book!
I have nothing but admiration for this writer, mother, and advocate. This time around she gets to write fiction! Love it!
