Ulysses was born in a small city in Oregon and is completely blind and hard-of-hearing. Despite these challenges, Ulysses has made great strides to achieve many successes in life.
Ulysses loves writing, whether it'd be a young adult novel, or a short self-help manual on a wide variety of topics. 'I love to research,' says Ulysses. 'I often research something before I actually get involved with it, so that I would be prepared.' When not writing, Ulysses is often travelling and exploring new places.
Ulysses is also a great advocate and social justice warrior for various minority groups, such as disability, LGBTQIA, and more. ‘Intersectionality is important,’ says Ulysses, referring to situations where people with multiple disabilities and/or characteristics are sometimes subject to lack of resources because of ignorance.

Who are your favorite authors?
My favourite authors include Lurlene McDaniel, Deborah Kent, Marilyn Reynolds, Suzanne Young, R. L. Stine, and others that I can't think of at the top of my head. Most of these authors write young adult fiction that are true to reality. Some, like Judy Blume, believe in writing honestly without censorship. I also enjoy reading books about LGBTQIA teens and adults from various walks of life.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I am a medical science nerd, so I spend hours on my computer surfing the web and making notes in my diary to come up with new ideas that haven't been thought of. I'm also a nature lover, and I love the smell of rain. So, when I catch a scent of wet earth wafting through my slightly-opened window, I'll immediately set everything aside to inhale its wonderful aroma. I love aromatherapy for this reason. I also like using my various musical instruments, such as the flute, clarinet, and pump organ so I can multitrack and make high-quality arrangements of my favourite pieces.
Are you interested in getting a piano? Maybe you found one being offered for free at a garage sale, but you were probably disappointed because it sounded horrible.
If you want to save some money, you can learn how to tune it yourself. It is recommended that you have some background in music theory and have a basic understanding of pitch identification.
Were you ever in a position where you needed to go on a plane, but you were too nervous about how it was going to feel that you couldn't concentrate? Are you intimidated by amusement rides and don't like taking risks? Or, what if you were an adventurer, but you simply couldn't afford to fly?
