Paul Laurence Dunbar wrote "We wear the mask that grins and lies." It is through writing that I have been able to break free of my mask. I enjoy writing about Psychology, Neurodivergence, my experiences, and my quirky interests.
Growing Up with a Love of Books and Writing
As a child, my favorite Disney princess was Belle from Beauty and the Beast. Yes, I know. It is far from the story of a healthy romantic relationship. However, my bond with Belle was deeper than that. It was her love of books, her yearning for adventure, and her feeling of otherness. She was not understood by those around her, but in books, she found the companionship she craved. As a child, I had no interest in playing tag or chase. I would find a perch in a tree that no one else could reach. It was there I would open my book and start my adventures.
