DR. MEL'S MESSAGE - From my novels to my other projects, no telling what you will read. This is the only place you will get to read about how I developed a screenplay into a novel and what is the driving force. I will talk about many things from films to books to acting to producing. It really will depend on where my mind takes me. I hope you will join me on this journey.
How to train a Superhero: A Story of Autism is a must-read for all parents. This book was written to encourage and inspire any parent or person, not just parents of children with disabilities. Teresia shares her journey of raising two sons on the autism spectrum. Within these pages, there is laughter, tears, passion, and encouragement as Teresia shares their search for diagnosis, the challenges they faced training them up and her personal testimony of God's revelation concerning their disabilities. She reveals the ten lessons her sons taught her and stories of the amazing way that God is using them for His purpose.
Even though this is a story of autism, there are many biblical truths about raising children. You will be encouraged and uplifted by this amazing story about an ordinary family who, by God's grace, raise two superheroes for His glory.
I am first and foremost a child of God, mother to two incredible young men and wife to an amazing husband for 38 years. Together we have raised two children on the autism spectrum. Our son Jack is diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome and Tommy is diagnosed with autism. Each unique and amazing in their own right. Tommy is 30 years old and Jack is 32 years old.
I love to read, decorate, learn about different types of businesses, cook, and travel. Other than God, my husband and my children are the most important thing to me. My older son Jack and I have a business that we have been trying to build and create multiple streams of income. We are learning a lot together about business in general, but also how to improve communication between us.
