• The Sense of Sight – RJ Scott’s Autism Awareness Blog Hop & a Free Book!

    I’m honoured to be part of RJ’s Blog Tour for Autism Awareness,  highlighting the Five Senses. An interesting fact you may not know about autism is:  People with an ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) who are hyposensitive to smell may have no sense of smell at all, and fail to notice extreme odours (this can include their own body odour). Some people may lick things to get a better sense of what they are. When I found out this blog tour would revolve around the five senses, my first thoughts went to Isaac Brannigan from Blind Faith.

  • Blind Faith Teaser…

    Here’s a little snippet of Blind Faith.  I wrote this while I was at work, and it’s rough and completely un-edited.   Without further adieu, I’d like you to meet Carter Reece and Isaac Brannigan.  **** I was still mad when I got to work the next day.  His behaviour dumfounded me. We’d had the best afternoon, and the more time I spent with Isaac, the more I realized I liked him.  Not just liked… I admired him.
