About the Author

Avis Blackmon Coleman is the mother of five children (aged 10 – 14).  She and her husband, John, have been married 18 years. In addition to the obvious duties of motherhood, she is a freelance writer.  The University of South Carolina Broadcast Journalism major spent 17 years in television as a reporter and anchor before retiring to care for her growing family.  But she didn’t stop working.  She wrote her first book, Manic Mom’s Survival Manual, a few years ago while feature writing for a new quarterly called Something Special Magazine.  Some of the early articles she wrote for the magazine are featured in her second book called Special Needs: Special Families.
