I struggled with a title for my blog and came up with the clever name of "Pat O'Connor," a placeholder until inspiration sends its crafty fingers into my subconscious.
I recently completed a memoir entitled "Becoming Sissa," which is available for review by any and all agents, My memoir describes the impact that my brother Kevin has had on my life, since I first realized that he was different. Writing the book has brought me the awareness of a community of people - Sibs - who are the siblings of people with disabilities. I am proud to count myself among their members.
So I have decided to entitle my blog "Being Sissa." Sissa is what Kevin calls me, dating from when he could not make the "st" sound. I cherish being called by that name.
