Radio Show for Ladies & Girls with Autism or Asperger Syndrome

Ladies, listen in! 

Radio Host Karen with Autism Empowerment Radio shares about Autism Empowerment, the Autistic Sisterhood and one of her recent blog entries written specifically for females with autism and Asperger's and the loved ones who support them.

Karen doesn't want listeners to get hung up on labels or self-identification. So whether you consider yourself a gal with Asperger's or Autism, an Aspergirl, autistic, Aspie, autie or whatever term you find most applicable or personally appealing, be sure to tune in. If you're not on the spectrum yourself but are related to a woman or girl who is, listen in.  Even if you're a guy curious what Karen has to say, you're welcome too!

This radio show episode is meant to be loving and inspirational and to let you know that you are not alone in navigating the road less traveled on the autism spectrum.
Karen is the Executive Director of Autism Empowerment, a 501(c)(3) non-profit. She is also an Aspie, a mom to two sons who have been diagnosed with autism and Asperger's respectively and she was recently honored in New York City in May with the 2012 GRASP (Global and Regional Asperger Syndrome Partnership) Distingued Spectrumite Medal.
Karen is a former touring professional bowler with the Ladies Pro Bowlers Tour, having been nominated for both the Robby Sportsmanship award as well as the Rookie of the Year Awards. She is also an online retail businesswoman with over 13 years experience in sales and marketing and an eBay PowerSeller with over 20,000 positive feedbacks.
She co-founded Autism Empowerment in June of 2011 with her husband John and shortly thereafter coined the four foundational pillars of the organization, Accept, Enrich, Inspire and Empower. 
She appreciates neurodiversity and believes in promoting Acceptance, Enrichment, Inspiration and Empowerment for all those within the Autism and Asperger communities.

2 Fiction Writers on Autism Empowerment Radio this week!

Hello Autism Empowerment Radio Fans,

We have two fantastic interviews for you this week.

Tuesday, August 7th from 8:00 - 8:30 p.m. PST. - Brian Tashima: Dad, Musician, Secret of the Songshell Author

Special guest Brian Tashima returns to Autism Empowerment Radio and shares what has been happening since the recent release of his YA Science Fiction / Fantasy book, Secret of the Songshell. We’ll explore Brian’s love for music (he sings and plays guitar in 3 bands), his passion for writing and his dedication to parenting.

We also talk more about Secret of the Songshell, a book written to provide kids on the autism spectrum with a fictional hero that they can call their own - a character that saves the day with his special qualities, not despite them.
Sure to be a great interview!

Wednesday, August 8th from 2:30 - 3:00 p.m. PST. - Interview with Michaelbrent Collings: Author of The Meridians

THRILLING interview alert! Karen with Autism Empowerment Radio will be chatting with Michaelbrent Collings, author of The Meridians, a horror / suspense novel featuring a young boy on the autism spectrum.
Michaelbrent Collings is a novelist and screenwriter. He has written numerous bestsellers, including Apparition, The Haunted, Rising Fears, and the #1 horror and sci-fi novel RUN. He also writes YA fiction, including the bestselling Billy: Messenger of Powers.
He hopes someday to develop superpowers, or, if that is out of the question, then at least to get a cool robot arm.
Michaelbrent has a wife and several kids, all of whom are much better looking than he is (though he admits that's a low bar to set), and also cooler than he is.
Michaelbrent also has a Facebook page at
MichaelbrentCollings and can be followed on twitter through his username @mbcollings. Follow him for cool news, updates, and advance notice of sales. You will also be kept safe when the Glorious Revolution begins!
