About the Author
Debbie has been involved in celiac awareness and support since she discovered that she needed to be gluten free in 2000. Her desire to increase celiac awareness and an understanding of a gluten free diet led to 'Adam’s Gluten Free Surprise: Helping Others Understand Gluten Free,' her first children's book. Her inspiration for Adam was her children who supported and accepted a gluten free kitchen because their mom’s health depended on it. She was inspired by her son’s positive matter-of-fact attitude when it was discovered that he also required a gluten free diet. He faced each school and social event with an inspiringly positive acceptance. Debbie is passionate about the testing of children, and anyone who may have health issues related to undiagnosed celiac, a disease that affects nearly 1% of us. She hopes to ease the path for those who require a gluten free diet with her books 'Adam's Gluten Free Surprise' and 'Hailey’s Gluten Free Surprise.' She also wrote, 'The Syrup Maze: An Inspirational Journey Through Recovery From a Traumatic Brain Injury,' about her son after an auto accident in 2012. Included is the struggle they faced in the hospital and in rehab with safe and appropriate gluten free food for her son who has nonceliac gluten sensitivity. Change is needed.

"Adam's Gluten Free Surprise" is a excellent book to read to any child with celiac disease, gluten sensitivity, and/or other food allergies. It is also an important read for any child who would benefit from having a better understanding of food allergies and intolerances, especially siblings and classmates of such children.
After we were finished with this book, my first grader and I had a nice discussion about all of the kids in her classroom who have food allergies. My preschoolers both gained a better understanding of celiac disease and why I have to be so careful to avoid foods with gluten. They asked me multiple times if I ever get sad like Adam does about not being able to eat "gluten foods" anymore...
This is a fabulous book and I am grateful to have recently discovered it. I highly recommend it!
It actually brought tears to my eyes when they were doing the party. It worries me so much how Abigail, and to some extent others, will act when they learn how careful they need to be. Abigail knows to be careful, but she is a kid, and kids make mistakes. I often worry about how hard it will be for her at school. This is such a great book. I can not wait to read it to her and Connor at bedtime. And I can not wait to send it to school with her in the fall. It is really an informative book. I know it will help not only the other kids, but the teachers and staff as well! Thank you!!!! ~Cherie
