Editorial Reviews

Review

"You could feel the characters feelings, emotions, and most of all... their struggles. You could feel how courageous and brave they all were." -- Stacy Stewart, We Have Romance

"What kind of world would it be if everyone were exactly alike? Differences are what make us unique, no matter if those differences are visible like the color of the skin or some scars, or more subtle like a brain working in a special way." -- Goodreads Review 

From the Author

I was diagnosed with (mild) Asperger's Syndrome (one of the Autism Spectrum Disorders) a few years ago. 
My Asperger's manifests as:
  • Awkwardness in social situations
  • Not always knowing what to say or how to respond when someone talks to me 
  • Missing social cues that are obvious to other folks, like body language or the expressions on people's faces
  • Disliking change
  • Lack of eye contact or reciprocal conversation
  • Obsession with specific, often unusual, topics
The desire to understand my brain (atypical as it is) has driven me to research all sorts of neurological/psychological/mental/emotional disorders in order to understand what makes other people tick. I've found it to be such a fascinating well of knowledge, and it makes for some amazing characters. In this short story collection, I delve into what it means to live with autism, PTSD, fibromyalgia, and Alzheimer's, putting these disorders and syndromes into a dark fantasy story to give more insight into what makes us different, but never damaged.
