Well, it’s almost the end of the day, but I still want to mark the occasion! Here’s wishing you a Happy Autistic Pride day and many advancements in understanding and acceptance in the coming year.

The International Day of the Stim

The International Day of the Stim

Excerpt from I Can See You

Excerpt from I Can See You

I had a tough time deciding which book to do an excerpt from today! I just finished books 1 and 2 of Michael Leese's Jonathan Roper Investigates series. I quite enjoyed these books, with a team made up of neurotypical police detective Brian Hooley and autistic consultant Johnathan Roper. My excerpt ...
Excerpt from The Life We Bury

Excerpt from The Life We Bury

I mentioned The Life We Bury in my last post, and I had to bring it up again to give you a teaser. I really enjoyed this one. Faintly reminiscent of To Kill a Mockingbird, this well-woven mystery is a pleasure to read. The writer/sleuth has a complex background and ...
Excerpt from Neurotribes

Excerpt from Neurotribes

Neurotribes by Steve Silberman has been on my "to read" list for a while now, and I wish I had picked it up sooner. Silberman delves into the history of the recognition of autism, its diagnosis and treatment, and the neurodiversity movement. He is a great storyteller and has a ...

Excerpt from Best Boy

Excerpt from Best Boy

My teaser today comes from Best Boy by Eli Gottlieb. This is a novel written in the first-person point of view of an adult with autism who is living in an assisted living facility. A quick look at Twitter reveals that Eli Gottlieb's brother is autistic. I enjoyed Todd Aaron's ...
Double-Header for Teaser Tuesday

Double-Header for Teaser Tuesday

One of the reasons that I picked up The Gauguin Connection by Estelle Ryan is that like This Plague of Days, it involves a protagonist on the autism spectrum at the center of an intriguing plot. And unlike This Plague of Days, The Gauguin Connection gives us a capable, believable, ...
