Fortune on the Spectrum

Fortune on the Spectrum is a new novel featuring a character with autism. This character becomes the youngest self-made millionaire in Texas history and endures multiple challenges both before and after his great achievement. Autism books fiction.

Books and novels abound these days with themes relating to autism spectrum disorder.  A large percentage of these books are in the non-fiction category which give advice to parents and loved ones of children with autism. Doctors, therapists and other professionals also have added their take on the subject in great numbers of published works.

Many of the interesting quirks and behaviors of the main character were inspired by my son. Of course I gladly ran with the fleshing out of an interesting adventure for all readers, but knowing parents with experience with such things will recognize familiar themes as well.
