Intriguing story about autism treatments and attitudes in the late 60s/early 70s. Much of the plot was kind of predictable, but still a great story with great history of a subject that obviously gets a lot of my attention. Lovely, satisfying ending!

Born in Orange County, California. Grew up in Covina, about 20 miles east of L.A.

Started writing in the sixth grade. I passed my stories around to the other kids in the class. I've never gotten over the sheer pleasure of watching them respond. I still feel the same way. When one of my books today causes someone to laugh or cry or think more clearly, I experience the same pleasure I did as a boy.
