It’s Autistics Speaking Day, and I didn’t write anything, not only because my writing-on-command abilities have not been working quite the way I wish they were, but also because I have been proofreading and formatting the first anthology from the Autism Women’s Network, What Every Autistic Girl Wishes Her Parents Knew, which will be out this month (if it kills me. ; )
There are so many lines in this book that it’s been killing me for months not to be able to share or quote publicly yet. Every single author has something important, wise, and necessary to say, and I couldn’t be more thankful to all of them.
Visit the book website to see our teaser video and sign up to be notified on release day!
[Image reads “What Every Autistic Girl Wishes Her Parents Knew” and depicts three girls drawn in cartoon style: One has blonde hair and blue eyes, wears a gray shirt and a bow tie and is using a cane. One has brown skin, black hair, and green eyes, wears a blue shirt, and is sitting in a wheelchair. One has olive skin, brown hair, and brown eyes, wears a pink dress, and waves at the audience.]
