Hammond writer pens book

"Dream Stealers" by Caroline Washington


A Hammond writer has published a new novel about autism and family stress.

Light Switch Press published Caroline Washington's "Dream Stealers," which is billed as "a refreshingly honest book that will make the reader laugh, cry and somehow relate to the adventure of the main character Mia Moore."

"Mia is a woman whose life is anything but perfect, yet with the love of her son, Isiah, who has autism, she is able to press on ... that is until her sister comes into her life and brings complete and utter confusion," the publisher said in a news release. "Go inside this laugh-out-loud story that gives the reader life, love and a small pinch of romance."

Washington, a graduate of Hammond High School and Ivy Tech, previously published the books "Mood Swings: Poetry and Essays" and "My Own Words: Chopping Down the Weeds." She's blogged extensively about the Autism Spectrum Disorder.
