Author releases new children’s book about inclusion and her inspirational autobiography

PORT SAINT LUCIE, Fla. — Author Debra Sweeting announces the nationwide release of her eye-opening new books: “Inclusion Island,” an anti-bullying children’s book that will be up for grabs this week, and “Dreams Manifested,” which will hit the shelves early September.

“Inclusion Island” is a charming book about school-age children, who experience some form of rejection for being different than their peers, formulating their own perception of how others may see and treat them. Bullying and social isolation are a huge problem for many children across the world. The truth is that everyone, despite their race, culture, cognitive or physical abilities, is more alike than different. “Inclusion Island” will be available in hardback editions early September.

In “Dreams Manifested,” Sweeting shares her incredible stories of trials and tribulations that she personally experienced — from battling and winning her life back from cancer to her struggles with infertility issues, when motherhood was what she dreamed of having the most. She shares some of the challenges of raising a beautiful, precious child diagnosed with Down syndrome and autism, and what she learned through helping and watching her daughter slowly overcome some of the physical, cognitive and behavioral challenges she faced. Sweeting also went through excruciating pain with the sudden death of her spouse and, as if that was not enough, the loss of her career and financial stability shortly after. In “Dreams Manifested,” readers will find out how she found her way through grief with her recommitment to Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, and her ability to use her life intentionally as a testament of God’s greatness and divine purpose for her life.

Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the books are available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at, or by visiting or

Sweeting, who holds a master’s degree in business administration, a bachelor’s degree in business management and a dual degree in marketing, believes that the most important title or credential she has is being a mother. As the proud parent of a beautiful little girl with special abilities, she has a vested interest in advocating for her child and assisting other parents to do the same. Sweeting hopes to empower others to live a purpose-driven life.
