I started this blog based on a few questions I was asked by research scientists regarding coping techniques for prosopagnosia. These questions led to more questions. I soon started to write answers to questions I had been pondering in my own mind and were not yet thought of by doctors. And so, years of writing began.
This blog has become my outlet for self-discovery and offered wonderful connections with readers around the world. A long time ago, I started to entertain the idea of publishing a book. After every presentation I had given, at least one person asked why I had not written a book yet. This question was followed with when will I write the book? At first, I doubted my ability. I soon decided that there were people waiting for me to write it, and I loved writing. I went for it.
For nearly a year now, I have been rearranging essays from this blog and trying to determine which essays are the best. And so, the final product is nearly here. Publishers, my book editor (I have the greatest one by the way), and numerous supporters have paved the way for this book to be published. I will have it listed on my new website very, very soon. By the way, have you checked out tarafall.com yet?
Next week I will be traveling half-way across America for a book promotion tour. This will allow me to see old friends and celebrate new accomplishment. Yes, the essays are from the blog, but now you will see the ones I am most excited to share all in one book. Stop back soon to see information on how you can order your copy of BrainStorming: Functional Lessons from a Dysfunctional Brain.
“We read books to find out who we are. What other people, real or imaginary, do and think and feel… is an essential guide to our understanding of what we ourselves are and may become.”
