"Ages ago, I was a single disabled dad with four daughters. Now I'm in my early 50s, juggling a disabled child, adult kids, bills, ADHD, depression, Tourette syndrome, and a pressing need to write in the crazy circus I call my life. I've been writing about the intersection of family, ADHD, and depression for more than years. I even managed to write the internationally selling book, Saying NO to Suicide, before getting distracted again. Who knows what else this year will hold for me if I can keep my focus long enough?
