    Hi All,

    Okay I'm really excited. My new books, "The Everything Parents Guide to Juvenile Diabetes," is now out! It's available on amazon.com as well as in all Borders and Barnes and Nobles nationally -- I'm sure it is in other book stores too but I know those for sure. I mailed Jeff H. a copy for review (hopefully he will like it!) It's a basic and from a parent's point-of-view book about daily care of your child with diabetes. Published by Adams Media (a big publisher!) and just so you know, all my proceeds ($10k this week alone!) are going directly to JDRF.

    I hope some of you will consider reading it! Many of my thoughts and ideas came from all I've learned on this site over the years (and this site is talked about in the book of course!)

    Here is a link:

    http://www.amazon.com/Everything-Pa...0924932?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1175540463&sr=8-1

    This is my third book -- the first two were on the history of women's golf and then on skiing -- but I am really excited about this one.

    Best

    Wow, congratulations! That is so great. Good for you for taking that on, and for donating your proceeds as well. I bet Lauren is really proud of you right now.

    No it's not Lauren. Publisher's inside art! I have no idea who it is. Book is selling really well. I am happy and surprised. It's scary for me. when I write about skiing or golf or tennis I know I am an expert . . but diabetes and kids??? I am no more an expert (and maybe less) than any of you. My agent had to talk me into it when the publisher approached her about it. I didn't want to come off like a know it all. We struggle EVERY DAY here at our house! So my hope is that it is a nice, basic guide. I actually refer people to this site and to great books like Pumping Insulin by John Walsh in it.

    For my next project my agent wants me to write a book on how to be a good youth sports parent. Now THAT's a political subject!
