I am autistic and and married to an autistic man. We have raised two sons with autism. I spent many years advocating for those with autism and their families, running a support group, a disabilities ministry, and holding local state and national posts, including president, in The Autism Society of America.
As a chemist, I made a career developing new technologies and am the inventor on multiple patents. One achievement of which I am particularly proud is the formulation of the adhesive to hold heart catheters together. I co-founded a company and learned first hand about the vagaries of business and the dishonesty and fraud that is rampant in the business world. I loves my work in the laboratory, particularly the development of green products, but eventually left it in favor of transitioning to a career writing, which I have loved to do since I could hold a pencil.
I've always had a love of music and have sung both in choirs and as a soloist since I was four years old. I continue to be active in the church choir. I also serve as Sunday School Superintendent.
As an author, I have written multiple books, including special needs cookbooks and novels. Most, but not all of my books relate to autism. The cookbooks serve the needs of those who must be gluten and casein free.
I continue to write. I have a steady stream of work as a ghostwriter creating web content, as well as continuing to pen books. I also pen stories online which are free for the reading all over the world.

It took several iterations before there was one I liked. Moving slowly but moving forward.
