Hello! This is a rebroadcast of our 11/13/12 interview with a new show title.

Autism Empowerment welcomes back Vancouver, WA author and musician, Brian Tashima to talk about recent endorsements and buzz for his young adult Sci-Fi fantasy novel, Secret of the Songshell.

Brian's autism-friendly book is gaining popularity with teens and adults on and off the autism spectrum. Also gaining notice is Brian's charitable nature. Brian donates a portion of the sale of each book to Autism Empowerment and regularly volunteers with and supports the local Autism & Asperger community.

Listen in as we talk with Brian about recent events and learn about future plans for the Spectraland series. (Hint: Hes already well into book 2!) If you like Harry Potter and Percy Jackson, youll love Brian Tashima!
