Coming soon from eFitzgerald... available in print and in eformat

Hello and welcome to our book's blog. How David Met Sarah is the story of a young man with Down Syndrome who falls in love with a young woman with autism. What makes How David Met Sarah different from any of my previous work is that I wrote the book for my youngest brother. He is 36 and has Down Syndrome.
I wrote How David Met Sarah with two goals in mind: to give my brother a story he could read and enjoy on his own, as well as one that had a hero with which he could identify. Like the main character in the story, my brother lives at home with his parents, works in a mail room and has even been in love.
I didn't intend to publish the story at first. My brother loved the initial chapters, and that was enough to encourage me to complete it. But one day I needed a sample manuscript to use at a writing workshop. The only work in progress I had to share was this one. I used the opening chapters in the workshop, and the response was so positive, I was encouraged to share the story with everyone.
How David Met Sarah is a story that is not only accessible to those with developmental disabilities, but also offers insight into what it's like to live with such a disability. My brother and I hope everyone enjoys it. Thanks for stopping by....Annie Kelleher (and David Kelly)

Thought for today

"One's destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing." - Henry Miller.

That quote reminded me of something a lot of people tell me after they've read How David Met Sarah and When David was Surprised.  The books help them to see the world from a different perspective.

What other books do that for you, Gentle Reader? 


  1. These past couple of days have brought me to a "place" where I *see* that my intentions over the past several years ~ relating to a specific aspect of my life ~ have not been as pure as I had perceived.

    I love ~ and am grateful for ~ my muddy waters. For *seeing* them, that is. Now.
