Amy Signs, A Mother Her Deaf Daughter and Their Stories marks a signature departure from other books about raising a Deaf child, because the story is told from two perspectives: that of the hearing parent and of the Deaf child. The book provides help and hope to parents who are raising any special needs child, not just a Deaf child.

Amy's sections of the book will give readers a first-hand account of what it is like to be Deaf in a hearing world. Should all Deaf and their families learn ASL? "Yes!" Amy says. Read her reasons in Amy Signs.

Writers Write, or What I am Doing Now

I'd like to rest on my laurels, but I have none. Few authors do. Having Amy Signs Published by Gallaudet University in Washington, D.C. fulfilled a dream that I envisioned for more than 35 years, but I don't want to be a one-hit wonder like the Baha Men who sang Who Let the Dogs Out.

My next goal is to finish editing my young adult novel, The Whole Plots Crazy, then I will look for a publisher. I'm currently editing chapter 8 of 35 chapters. Select the tab above to read the first chapter. I would love to have your feedback. Did it hold your interest, do you like Rebel, do you want to read more? I accept positive and negative feedback, and currently am groggy on pain medication, so  nasty comments won't bother me. Send comments to

I am sad to say I have not sold any stories or persuaded anyone to produce my awarding-winning plays in the last year. But I continue to submit them.  As for past accomplishments, my manuscripts have been published in Love is a Verb, Expecting Miracles, and One Year Joy and Laughter, and on several on line sites. Check my site often to see how I am progressing and to encourage me NOT to be a one hit wonder.

Read my Blog  

My blog is a mish-mash of events in my life. It is a short read that I try to publish every week. My next book, which is nearing completion, will be a humorous coming of age tale about Rebel, a young girl in Shonefeld, Kansas, who is surrounded by quirky neighbors. Rebel's adventures and her desire to unearth a family secret will entertain readers from middle school and above.
