I am Psycho! I am Blue! I am PSYCHOBLUE!

Post by Psychoblue » Fri December 30th, 2011, 3:46 am

Hello hello! I'm a newly-certified autism teacher who lives in Richmond, Virginia. My hobbies include fighting games, playing music, weight-lifting, and above all WRITING! Writing has been a key part of my being for a long time now, and just recently I've been dabbling more into historical fiction. That's when I came across this forum.

My favorite era in history is the 19th century. The American Civil War, the Bakumatsu Era/Boshin War/Meiji Restoration, the invention of the light bulb, morse code, basketball, baseball, and the prototypes what would eventually become submarines, the Indian Wars, the Wild Wild West, Victorian England, the Industrial Revolution: it really feels like it was an exciting time to be alive. Some of my favorite films and television series, such as Sherlock Holmes (any incarnation barring the BBC "modern" version), Gangs of New York, Rurouni Kenshin, the Last Samurai, the Magnificent Seven and Blazing Saddles all take place in this era. Someday I hope to share my own historical fiction novel with you, as well!

Is that right? Are you still in Richmond? I'll be working out of Chesterfield County.

I'm an aspie myself, which is why I wanted to be in the field of autism as a career. It probably contributes to my wild imagination, as well! :D Now that I'm officially in the field, I hope to one day write a book about autism theories and practices. At the least, I want it circulated through universities and school systems. At the most, I hope to talk about it on TV someday!

Well, to be honest, my favorite color is actually purple!

3 boys on the spectrum, holy Toledo! Are they all on the same part of the spectrum?
