I am blessed with two beautiful children, one of which is a Type 1 Diabetic, "Ari," who is my inspiration in writing the "I Am Ari" book series. I personally advocate for Type 1 Diabetes research and education (I take every opportunity to teach others about this disease, because as they say knowledge is power and unfortunately the general public knows little to nothing about this rarer form of diabetes), and I am also in the process of fundraising for a diabetes alert service dog for my daughter. The reason that I am primarily writing about Type 1 Diabetes is because I really want to help other families out there dealing with this difficult disease. In the near future I plan on expanding my writing collection to include advice books for parents just starting this life-long journey, a book about our family's personal journey, and possibly a book about Type 1 Diabetes for people without the disease. Any maybe, in the not so near future, expanding to works of fiction, but for now I want to focus my writing to helping others.
