Please tell us something about yourself.
I am 30 years old, I have Autism Asperger.
How did you get into what you do right now? Please tell us more about your journey.
I have been working on publishing my children's book for over 10 years. I have finally been able to publish it on Amazon Kindle. It was a very hard and long road for me, looking for artists and editors and where to put it up. For a lot of people, it doesn't become true. Still, I finally fulfilled my dream with the help of my determination and stubbornness and not losing hope. I am finally out there, and you guys can do it, make your dreams come true, never give up, and one day it will happen.

Erin Hunter, the author of Warriors, is my role model.

My cat, Marco. He always finds a way to calm me when I am sad or angry.
