What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest joy of writing would have to be split between two different joys for me. One being the awareness my non-fiction books bring to the disorders they are about. When I write non-fiction it's only about topics that touch my heart and soul. I put every ounce of myself into writing them. It brings such joy to be able to shine the spotlight on something so in need of attention. The second being the sense of liberation it brings to me as a person. My day to day life is extremely structured and based on a routine developed for my severely autistic son. There isn't much swaying from thing to thing allowed. When I write it gives me some 'me time'. It's just me, the keyboard, and my mind.
What are you working on next?
Currently I am working on my very first fiction novel. I do not want to divulge to much information about it being it is in it's early stages. Be watching for it soon though!
