Local Newspaper Spotlights My New Book!


The news is abuzz with the release of my children’s book, Daddy’s Different: A look at Brain Injury Through a Child’s Eyes.

Printed today, May 10th in the Columbian Newspaper:

“In the years following her husband’s car accident, Ginille Forest had to learn what she calls “the language of traumatic brain injury.”
But mere words didn’t seem adequate to explain his changed personality to the couple’s two small children, who were an infant and a 5 year old at the time of the 2008 crash, she said.
“I had a hard time explaining it to my 5-year-old when I didn’t even understand it,” said the 32-year-old from Battle Ground. “It’s been a long road, but I now consider myself a brain injury native.”
One issue among the many she faced was that there were no resources available to explain to her children what was happening.
There were books by people who had suffered brain injuries, and books about kids with brain injuries, but there was nothing out there to help explain to children how a parent’s demeanor would change after such an event.
So she decided to use her own experience from the past five years to remedy that situation…”
