[quote=""Psychoblue""]Is that right? Are you still in Richmond? I'll be working out of Chesterfield County.[/quote]

No, we've moved up and down the East Coast and are living in NC now. Once my daughter's out of college and we're not tied down by in-state tuition rates, we hope to move--maybe to northern VA or farther north. I miss Richmond; it's such a history-laden city!

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

Welcome, Psychoblue. We have both Kanners and Asbergers in the family, but ours seems to specialize in bipolar and schizophrenia. One thing about the spectrum disorder gene pool -- you never know how a family gathering is going to turn out!

[quote=""Psychoblue""]3 boys on the spectrum, holy Toledo! Are they all on the same part of the spectrum?[/quote]

Nope. We like to spread it out for the sake of variety. :D Our oldest is an Aspie, followed by the next boy down with high-functioning autism, and our youngest has mild to moderate autism (which is kind of like classic except way more outgoing and social than most autis). Then we have our little girl who is NT.

Thanks, friend!

I have not run into anyone with Kanner's syndrome as of yet, but I'm sure that will be changing very soon as I begin work next week. Thank you all very much for making me feel welcome, and look forward to what I'm going to contribute to the forum in the coming days :)

Hey everyone! Just thought I'd let you know that the first chapter of my story Blade in the Snow is up in the Member's Writings section. This is to be an exclusive preview for this forum before I put it up as an e-book on kindle, so get it while it's hot!

Psycho - Blue - if you lived in North Carolina I'd bet you were a Duke Blue Devil (Cameron Crazie). But Richmond . . . perhaps VTech? Welcome aboard.
