Interview With Author Christine Weiss

 1. What motivated you to write your book, to force you from taking an idea or experience and turning it into a book? I was motivated to write the book because there is so many parents struggling with an autistic child. Currently 1 in 55 children born today will be on the autistic spectrum. I have walked the journey and want to share my experiences as well as the therapies that benefited my son.  


2. What is it about and who is it for? The book is about my journey with my son Marston and how to navigate the world of autism. It’s for all moms and care givers; to inspire, motivate, and inform as they move forward through this difficult struggle


3 What do you hope the reader will be left with after reading it? I hope the reader will be left with hope and a game plan on their journey through autism.


4 What advice or words of wisdom do you have for fellow writers? My advice for fellow writes is to keep copious notes as well as a journal to help you remember exactly what was happening. Also, know your subject. You are the expert


5. What trends in the book world do you see -- and where do you think the book publishing industry is heading? The digital world is here to stay. Books on tape and e-books as well as Amazon forcing out many small book sellers and publishers.


6. What challenges did you overcome to write this book? Writing the book was very difficult as I had to relive some very difficult moments of my life. Once I decided to move forward, I am not one to turn back.


7. If people can buy or read one book this week or month, why should it be yours? I believe this book is for everyone. Certainly, parents and grandparents directly affected by autism will use it as a reference to help guide the way. Also, since autism is so rampant in society; everybody knows a family struggling with the diagnosis. This book will help them better understand the struggles of their friends and neighbors.
