Are you a parent, grandparent or educator of a special needs child?
Hello everyone, my name is Amy Quonce and I am a Teacher Assistant at the Oswego City School District. I am trying to reach fellow writers who may be interested in taking part in a community project.
I have started on a new venture and am currently in the process of compiling together stories from people in Upstate NY whose life has been affected by an individual with a disability. These stories are going to be in an anthology that is going to press on November 6th.
The anticipated released date for this book is the beginning of December.
I am self publishing a new book titled Sometimes The Wind Blows Sideways: Our Lives With A Special Needs Child.
The concept of this book is very similar to the Chicken Soup for the Soul series. Stories that will make people laugh, cry, and feel connected to another human being. They may be written from a parent, caregiver, teacher, neighbor, friend, coach, etc. Anybody who has had a special needs individual (young or the young at heart) touch their lives is welcome to write a story.
Several stories will be displayed at the Oswego YMCA's member & staff holiday party on Dec. 2nd, and everyone who participates will be invited to share their story during a public reading this spring. This past Friday I shared one of my stories from the book at the River's End Bookstore and it went very well !!

Thank you, Amy Quonce
