I am a features writer for Spectrum Women Magazine and have also written on autism and learning disability for a number of other publications. I live in the Northern Ireland countryside with my husband Stephen, son Darragh, Ash the assistance dog and Baz the cat (who is no help whatsoever). I was diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome in 2011 when I was 44 years old. Like many adults on the spectrum, I sought formal diagnosis after learning my son had autism. This site contains all my published articles.
