I have been writing a blog called Was this in the plan? for over 10 years.

It's an honest and open account of life parenting a child with very complex needs as well as managing the needs of my three other children, two of whom have a diagnosis of high-functioning autism.

In 2014 my husband was diagnosed with terminal cancer and I write openly about coping with his diagnosis, supporting our children and his death.

In 2017 my first book, Was this in the plan?, was published. It's an account of how our family responded to the challenges life has thrown our way.
