Overview

Jackie was the youngest child born to a 41 yr old mother. At 14 weeks gestation an ultrasound showed Placenta Praevia and an abortion was offered. The fertilized egg had attached itself at the neck of the womb instead of at the top.
Circumstances prevented Jackie from ever knowing her biological father completely. Short term memory loss, addictions, insecurity, jealousy, lack of comprehension, phobias, fear of stepping out of comfort zones, all had a name – ASPERGERS.

''At my next ultrasound, the radiographer told me that my baby had Hydrocephalus (water on the brain) as it had an abnormally enlarged head. I was offered an abortion because of my age.'' (PG) Another in the 'Blue Label' series by Trevi Formea.

Meet the Author

TREVI FORMEA is the pen-name of Jo-Anna Rose.She is a 'Baby Boomer' raised in the southern suburbs of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia and was born the youngest of four children (refer: A BABY BOOMER at any age).When 'Trevi' was 15, she won an essay competition through the defunct but once popular magazine - EVERYBODY'S. Their first prize was a week for two all expenses paid on beautiful Brampton Island, situated in tropical Queensland's Barrier Reef. Trevi was their youngest contestant and as such the sponsors 'awarded' and made available - a junior category but equivalent prize.Trevi was raised a Catholic, but disillusioned after 33yrs, went searching for the truth in other religions, including Mormon and Pentacostal - finally becoming a Lutheran.Having had four weddings and a funeral, her third marriage was the shortest lasting only 29mths. Suddenly Trevi was widowed at 47 years old, with her two youngest daughters Renee 16 and Jackie 6 to raise - her youngest suffering from Asperger Syndrome (see 'Jackie - What's in a name?')After relocating in 2002 to Russell Island in Queensland's south-east corner with Jackie - now 9 yrs old, Trevi took on a position of reporter with their local paper 'The Island Spirit' - writing under her then married name of Jo-Anna Martin.Trevi has also had miscellaneous poems published through the island's 'Writer's Circle' under that name, as well as various short stories in other popular magazines.If you have enjoyed any of Trevi's e-book stories, please feel free to write a review.
