Hi! I’m Diana. I’m a writer, editor, educator, and book nerd. I live in Pittsburgh, PA, with my husband, Cody, and our sons Mikey (born in 2009), Alex (born in 2012), and Stanley (born in 2014). These are not our real names. Cody, Mikey, and Alex are all the names that my grandmother actually called my family members before we realized she has dementia. I picked Diana for my fake name in honor of Diana Barry–everyone needs a bosom friend.

On November 30, 2012, we learned our son Mikey has an autism spectrum disorder. This blog helps us figure out what that means and what comes next.
