Debra O’Fee, author of “I’m Sorry Jimmy Muscle: Why My Son With Autism Wanders” – When we first received my son’s autism diagnosis we were trying to settle into our new lives. Most important was looking into all the therapies that would help him learn how to communicate with us. It was such a new scary world. It was the first time we were being introduced to our school district and we were instantly put in a position to work closely with them on a subject that we knew nothing about but had just become the most important focus of our lives. A lot of children with autism have a lot of sensory issues; my son was one of them. We had many upsetting experiences, in the beginning, helping him cope with them. Many meltdowns and embarrassing scenes in public. Dealing with the judgmental stares of non-understanding people. Just when I felt so overwhelmed, exhausted, and not able to handle another thing, my son went missing for a short period of time. We figured out he is an eloper (48% of children with autism are). My son who seemed to be disinterested and not able to focus on most things was calculating and strategizing in one area: removing himself from situations he did not feel comfortable in. If I thought things were hard before, his eloping would have us not even able to get sleep at night. The theme of our lives had become trying to keep one step ahead of his beautiful creative mind. This is our story.

William Schumpert, author of “The Lakeside” – Matt was always fond of River Falls after leaving to live in the city. Eager to visit the countryside he grew up in he drove in anticipation to his old home by the lake, yet he finds that his old home is not what it used to be. Haunted by a bizarre atmosphere and mysterious creatures in the very bellows of Hell, all while a child’s life hangs on the balance of intricate madness- “But that shadow- that foreboding presence… As hard as I tried I could not ignore its presence… there had to be an end to it! For God’s sake, there must be an end to this menacing chaos!”
