We had a nice exchange earlier, and for all those folks good enough to extend responses, I wanted to let you know that messages via crimespace are having a bit of trouble reaching me, so if you need, use

Hi Brenda,
Oh, you won't regret it. SF is so much fun and the weather is really nice here almost year round. Hope you stay warm this winter!

I'll think of her name... but you look so much like her. Anyway, yes my nephew has autism and he is 17 now? Getting closer to that date... I don't see him often and he is in a home. He doesn't talk and I don't think he knows who I am.

Have a great weekend!

Oh My goodness you look like an actress... she played in "Freaky Friday" the newest version. I wanted to stop by and say thank you for adding me to your friends list. I look forward to talking with you and asking questions about getting published as I am trying.

You have an interesting career. I have a nephew with autism. He comes to visit his parents every once in a while. He is seventeen and not doing well. His medications are making him shake uncontrollably and he is just a mess right now. The doctors are trying everything they know... but it is hard to watch.

Stop by my page sometime and say hello! I would love to talk.

Hello again, Brenda,
I tend to space out my contacts in order to keep them particular and personal and relevant. Here's what I have for you today. The feature article in the latest Washingtonian magazine is on teenagers, to wit, your YA audience. I've an extra copy if you would like me to send it along. Ditto Suicide Diary, my YA novel. Should you decide you'd like them -- one or the other or both -- I encourage you to use my personal e mail, to provide me with contact information, a PO box or work address if that works.

Actually, no. A wealth of reading, PBS and Discovery Channel documentaries, plus Carol Roberts, an NSF National Science Foundation fellow who is an Antarctic expert. I do believe in visiting when possible, but I also believe in a balanced personal budget.

Judy Blume has probably pushed the 'edge' of YA fiction as far as commercial publishers will go. After that you may have to self-publish. Many imprints are available to escape the anathema of 'self-published,' and there are small presses with specific preferences that will go beyond what the big houses accept. I was amazed to learn that the NF best seller Twilight in the Desert, about the coming Saudi oil crisis, was almost self published. The author admits that he felt strongly enough about getting the material out that he would have gone that route, joining Thomas Hardy and others who never found a press willing to take their stuff.

Oh, yes, it is very much for and from the POV of older teens, with all of their issues about parents and themselves at the center of things. Closest in tone my be some of Judy Blume's early stuff.
