Arlinda Jackson

Biography

I'm 30 years old, from the great City of Detroit!

As a black woman with autism, I have looked for resources and other things that cater to me and my kind. However, I did not get so lucky to find these resources, so I began creating my own. I am here to write things that can provide insight, and help other black women on the spectrum who are looking for a source of information and advice. I am also here to help those black parents who have daughters on the spectrum- there's nothing wrong with your child- she's actually quite brilliant. Let me tell you how!

I am autistic and proud, and here to help my fellow autistic black women, and even our black autistic men. I want to let you know that i am here to help you understand, just like how I wish I had someone who could help me understand!
Thank you!

Smashwords Interview

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
There are a couple of things I do when I'm not writing. I spend a lot of time playing video games. I also work on my blog- but wait, that's writing. I spend a lot of time making sure that my writing is at the best I can make it. I also enjoy watching YouTube gamers like Dashie with my spouse, who found him and introduced me to his content. If you're into loud funny gameplay commentary he's the one you need to check out.
When did you first start writing?
I was six years old and I wrote a fanfic for Disney's Aladdin. I was so crazy about that movie when I was a kid.
