FARMINGTON, N.M. - October 7, 2022 - (

Norma Ramer, who worked as a caseworker in the Children, Youth, and Families Department for four years, as well as being a retired domestic violence counselor, has completed her new audiobook "Growing in Atlanta": a moving autobiographical account of the author's struggles as the mother of a blind and autistic daughter, and all that she did to provide her with the fullest possible life.

"Stationed state-side for two months at Ft. McPherson, Georgia, was the order, but that was changed to fourteen months," writes Ramer. "We were in Atlanta for fourteen months. I often compare that time to winning the lottery. Funny thing about winning the lottery. It would be nice to know what the winner's life was like before winning. How did they win, and what did that feel like? How did it change their life? That's the way I wrote the book, a little about the before, during (which I wouldn't trade for all the lottery winnings), and how it changed our lives forever."

Published by Audiobook Network, author Norma Ramer's new audiobook explores the sacrifices a mother must often make in the face of adversity for the sake of her child, and the surprising blessings that can arise from difficult times.

Audiobooks are the fastest-growing segment in the digital publishing industry. According to The Infinite Dial 2019, 50% of Americans age 12 and older have listened to an audiobook. This huge growth can be partly attributed to increased listening in cars, which surpassed the home as the #1 audiobook listening location in the 2019 survey. Smart speaker proliferation also bodes well for future listening growth and more mainstream listening.
