Hi SS,
Normal but Different This featured in an Aspire Short Story Competition and has had many downloads since I added it to the Kindle Store. All comments are appreciated.

Hi SS,
In preparing for the Aspire Competition, I did very detailed research on Asperger's Syndrome and based my character, Hank Chatto, on that research.
In the time that has elapsed since I wrote the story, relatives of mine have found that some of their children come within the Autistic Spectrum. The have remarked to me that they have found my story-line enlightening and inspiring.

Thank you, SS,
In your own interests and, in view of your age, could I ask you, please, to make sure that a close adult, preferably a parent, is involved with you in any posts that you make to public fora.
I wish you the very best.
Brian Comerford.

Hello. I'm only just catching up with this thread, but if you are still looking for books about people with Aspergers, written from their point of view, then I would recommend Dear Miss Landau by James Christie. It's the true story of the author's diagnosis, his growing interest in an actress from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, his correspondence with her, and his trip from Glasgow to Los Angeles to meet her on Sunset Boulevard. A real insight into how an Asperger's Syndrome person copes with the world - and also a very witty and very moving book, too.

There's a new novel by Nicholas Walsh called The Mysterious Coat. It is a good insight into how the author sees the world and interprets social situations and appears to have trouble indetifying reality from fantasy. I recommend it!

I have just read When Fraser Met Billy by Louise Booth. Touching and moving account of the relationship between a young autistic boy. True life not fiction.
