Thank you, thank you, thank you! -Leslie Easterbrook (Actress) Police Academy, Laverne & Shirley Anderson solidly delivers by serving up his readers poignant yet funny and entertaining tales of how he copes as a disabled single dad raising an autistic son, with little to no help from the outside world. Markham’s southern fried storytelling style is a delicious recipe I sorely needed and heartily recommend. His chapters are loaded with outrageously funny and descriptive scenes that had me laughing out loud so many times! And as a special needs parent, I also cried quietly in the darkness of my room as I silently absorbed and related to the bittersweet parts. But this book isn’t just for a caregiver like me who happens to be a working mom caring for two sons with differing types of autism, this from-the-heart book is a well crafted inspirational journey for anyone who genuinely needs to be uplifted. Clearly, the author wants you to know that you are not alone in your journey…two thumbs up, -Amy Daleo, Former Executive Dir., Autism Research Center-Flint, Michigan Connor, Brave & KInd is chock full of Southern style storytelling nuggets that are often both comical and bittersweet.
