Curious what kind of research you did to write Edward's story?
Hi, Nancy ... Less than you think, unless you think I didn't do much, in which case probably more than you think. I didn't want to write a story about autism; I wanted to write a story about a guy who happened to be autistic. Thus, making Edward consistent unto himself, whatever that happened to be, was more important to me than getting the diagnostics just so. My research focused on behaviors and traits more than clinical stuff. Thanks so much for the question.
