Welcome to the wild world of my musings! Though the wild nature of my musing has much more to do with an innate love of all things organically grown and less to do with a crazy boob flashing kind of wild. Although there was this one time. Anyway...
I am the lucky mother of four amazing young men, an avid sipper of coffee, a reluctant performer, a writer of musings, an addict of reading, a sharer of stories, and a shopper of groceries.
I am also the oldest of eight children who were raised with creativity and love by international mental health expert, Lynette Louise aka THE BRAIN BROAD. As the sister, mom and daughter of autism I enjoy writing about the many fantastic and fun learning’s being surrounded by difference challenged me to discover. A fan of mixing insight and humor, I love sharing quirky and fun revelations daily with fans on my Facebook page: Autism Answers. Feel free to hang out with us!
The Great Guest Giveaway: My Book!
I was invited to talk about my book, Spinning in Circles and Learning from Myself, on the popular podcast A NEW SPIN ON AUTISM: ANSWERS! for the Great Guest Giveaway segment!
I invite you to have a listen. The featured guest chats about her iPad App that helps people with autism practice social skills and communication, and I chat with the host (my mom!) about spilling family secrets and the value of living a unique life! And, I give away a book!
Spinning in Circles and Learning From Myself: A Collection of Stories That Slowly Grow-up
by Tsara Shelton
I've been growing up, and I've been writing. The stories in my book are a selection of the ideas and struggles I've unveiled while doing both. Parenting, autism, sex abuse, cultural relations, and poverty are just a few of the issues I write about with the goal of revealing my own answers. My stubborn joy insists on finding beauty in hardships and hurt, and for my children I insist on believing the world can do the same.
