Hello Internet People!!

This is my new project at art college. Join me on my wonderful adventures to Weirderland.

If you could also check out my website, that would be great. I write a blog and some articles about Asperger’s. I make some Autism Awareness products, as well as various other items featuring my artwork and photography. I also sell my books there too, the first book is full of poems and short stories, written whilst I was in the middle of a nervous breakdown. The second book is for children on the Autistic Spectrum, and is to help them understand sharing. My third book is about living with Asperger Syndrome and has lots of help and advice sections throughout, as well as a timeline on my website with loads more information to go with each chapter!
