After suddenly receiving custody of his five year old son, Ben must learn how to be a dad. The fact that he’d even fathered a child was news to him. Not only does this mean restructuring his sixty-hour workweek and becoming responsible for another human being, but also Kyle has autism.
Enter the school system and a shaky beginning. Under the guidance of a gifted teacher, Ben and Kyle take tentative steps to becoming father and son.
Teacher Melanie Nicols sees Ben as a deadbeat dad, but grudgingly comes to admire how he hangs in, determined to learn for his son’s sake. Her admiration grows to more as father and son come to rely on Melanie being a part of their lives.

Dr. Sharon A. Mitchell lives on a farm, with her nearest neighbor several miles away. Doesn’t that seem like the ideal setting to spark the imagination? She takes long walks with her hundred-pound German Shepherd dogs, Pickles and Dill. (She didn’t name them – don’t blame her).
She’s working on her fourth psychological thriller novel for the When Bad Things Happen series.
In addition to two, (almost three), short stories tied to that series, she’s written six novels, each featuring an autistic child or young adult. Two nonfiction books accompany that autism series.
