Even after winning some state journalism awards, publishing a few books, and spending about a decade at the head of college classrooms, Jason Norman always knew there was something about himself just a touch…off.
Yes, he'd felt out of place almost everywhere he'd been for his near-forty years. But around the time Norman finally received an answer, he'd found far higher priorities than articles and grades.
First came his wife Jennifer, the love of his existence. Then, in May 2017, arrived the dream the pair had never thought would ever become real: their daughter, Kennedy. In comparison, Norman's other issue would become the lightest shade of pale.
He was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome, a member of the lowest scale of autism. His social awkwardness and habits had made so many (including his wife, on occasion!) think he was nuts, but now Norman had to find some way to set an example for his little lady. 
At times depressing, sometimes downright sad, but chock-full of humor and introspect and always with an enormously moving sense of humility, An Aspie Daddy is the story of a man who found hope in his family and his overdue diagnosis. It takes others inside an Aspie mind to see what's there and how valuable and welcome it can be. 
And it tells the story of a little girl who gave two parents the greatest reasons to be better people themselves. It discusses the joys of fatherhood (and husband-hood) in a way that few authors truly can. And it's a message of hope to members of the autism community to find and use their newfound gifts, and how lucky they truly are. ...

From her carefree early life on a farm in rural South Australia to a marriage that was broken even before it began, then living as a struggling single mother and navigating a string of bad romances this is the story of a woman whose lessons in life and love have been learned the hard way.

Jules Hannaford grew up living an idyllic childhood, full of fun and adventures. She went to boarding school and had the time of her life, excelling at sport, making new friends and getting in trouble due to her risk taking and mischievous nature.

When single motherhood called for her to step up and take charge, she found her passion in her career as a teacher, yet she struggled to find someone to share her life with. One day, the opportunity came for her to move across the world, and she packed her bags, pulled her daughter out of school, and took the risk of leaving her sleepy home city for Asia's mega city of Hong Kong.

From then on, life was different. Suddenly, she was in a job she loved, and she no longer had to struggle to make ends meet, but there was still one thing missing. Love.

Optimistic, Jules began internet dating, and unwittingly invited a new kind of trouble into her life. Was it her trusting nature? Her naïveté? Or was it simply her desperate desire to share her life with someone that made her take the risks that almost cost her life.

Latest Poem

My great grandfather was a Slave

My grandfather was a Native

My grandmother was a Bantu

My mother was a kaffir, Nigga, Negro

Names imposed by shackles

But an Afrakan I am

An identity my forefathers were deprived of

 

An identity I am now polluting with the fumes of cigarettes

In dope I am giving it another face

In ecstasy I am giving it a comical image

My drunken stupor gives it an unstable belonging

My borrowed accent contradicts what it represents

My imitated dress code conceals its beauty

My adopted religion undermines my intellectual prowess

My language deafens my ancestors

My values are valueless

My mind is discriminatory

It repels anything indigenous

Whilst absorbing all that is alien

None can identify with me

Even those I am emulating

Patriotism I reserve for my kind

I look down at my patriots

If I were xenophobic

I could have been my own victim

I pride myself in my slanted inferior education

An education promptly deleting my true history

Ignorance is my custom

I am dreaming dreams my forefathers cannot interpret

I am singing praise songs for my dying culture

I am branding a heritage

I cannot inherit

Knowledge of freedom is embedded in my subconscious

But suppressed by fear

Fear to develop my culture and identity

Fear to be rejected by the world

Fear to be different and still love myself

Yet with no identity I remain
