Hello Friends and Readers,
This being the month of May, and in honor of moms, my mid-month contest/giveaway is for Caliburnus. Although this novelette is a work of fiction, it was inspired by my life as a special needs mom. My son’s diagnosis—or the “A word”—is spoken in hushed tones in our house, as well as the impetus and anxiety to share that part of my life with my readers. But here it is.
My other fiction is fun and meant to give readers a respite from anxiety. I’ve reveled in the luxury of those fantasies and find the escape into writing a significant blessing.
But it all stems from who I am and my journey as a mother. The chronic grief of having a child with special needs has left its impression on my soul. And I, like parents everywhere, share a rollercoaster of emotions as I work through my life with the hopeful prayer that I am doing my best.
If only, are words that haunt me. My beautiful son and I will forever travel together and my love, if not my magical ability to cure him, will remain true.

Much love, Annabelle
