While creating a book series that demonstrates the challenges and difficulties of living on the spectrum of autism through the life experience of our son, I realized that I did not have anything for the new parents who have just received an Autism diagnosis for their children and do not know where to go or what to do.
This situation, we experienced it. We have been there, we know what it feels like to be in the dark for quite some time before the services kick in and the ball starts rolling.
That is why I wrote this book, for parents to see what our experience was like and what happened after the services, for our son, started and how well he is doing. I start the story at birth, because it is where it actually started, and go on the the 8th grade. Throughout those years, there were challenges, sad moments, but also, many miracles and happy times.
Explore this book and this little story of new parents and a kid on the lower level of the spectrum and all of the wonderful things that happened to this family.
The book was originally written in french and is currently being translated for release.
The fall season is full of events and book shows in which we will take part. We are very excited to go and share our stories with you, listen to your stories and discuss about the book series. If you have a chance and if we are in your area, please take a second to stop by and say hi, we would love to talk with you.
We will soon be participating in an event called l’Eco-Festival in Bouctouche on September 9th, 2022 at the Bouctouche Farmers’ Market from 5pm till 8 pm. We will display our book series and some other books that the author wrote.

Here is the very last book in the series. This book demonstrates how a friendship of an autistic child and a trusted adult can develop quickly. We demonstrate this through a fantastic experience Sam had at a book fair as he met author / Illustrator Jean-Pierre Veillet. The latter has become a great friend of the family.
Mr Veillet is the owner of the publishing house les éditions Mine d’Art and he has agreed to publish the French version. This opens up our possibility of being able to participate in several book fairs.
