Published by Summertime Publishing, my new book A Positive Result was released in May 2018. Having received rave reviews from the special needs community, educators and parents alike the book is also appealing to a wider market of readers.
Following a successful pre-launch talk and signing at Steps with Theera in Bangkok I’m delighted to say all of those who came along agreed the book was a much-needed and informative book that should be made available to all new parents following diagnosis.
With plans to promote the book at the World Down Syndrome Congress this June as well as hosting a number of other book group talks and signings I am happy to discuss further promotional ideas with interested parties. If you run a support group or book club, please do get in touch at the email address below.

More about the book…
One boy with Down syndrome and a mum who refused to let others tell her what he could or couldn’t achieve.
When Jo and Cliff were told their child had Down syndrome at the 15th week of pregnancy they had little idea of what this meant. Determined to provide the best for him, Jo found Jamie could teach her as much as she could teach him. This is her story of how it feels living with a child who is ‘different.’ With humour, determination and some sadness, Jo gives the reader an insight into a world where everyday tasks can be a struggle and simple things mean a great deal. She reveals how that extra chromosome may make Jamie different, but really, he is just the same as other children – given half the chance.
One in a thousand babies born in the UK every year have an extra chromosome that means they have Down syndrome. This is one boy’s story as seen through his mother’s eyes.
