Carrie in Cornwall
This is the second book about Carrie, who is autistic. In this story, she goes on holiday to Cornwall and makes some new friends, has adventures and helps someone in need. The book is aimed at children from 8 – 12 years, with or without ASD – I hope they will find it uplifting, entertaining and informative too.
I had never heard of autism when I was young; I had a late diagnosis as an adult. I wrote these stories about Carrie, to help raise awareness and understanding, and to give children with ASD, a story about a character they may be able to relate to in some way. I hope children will enjoy it. It is available as an ebook and a paperback from Amazon and free on KindleUnlimited.
I am currently writing a third children’s book.
Carrie in the Land of Not-Oz
This is the first story of Carrie – an 11 year old girl who has Asperger’s (Autism). She struggles to make friends at school, although this is her dearest wish. The story shows how Carrie tries to find ways to change her life, form friendships and to make her Mum proud of her.
The story is not a self-help book, but an illustrated chapter book for middle grade children with or without ASD. The problems faced by Carrie and others with ASD are treated in a sympathetic and engaging way, and adventures feature throughout the story.
I hope that all children will enjoy this book, and their parents or carers too, if they read this story to their children. I hope that it will help children too, that is MY dearest wish for my book.
