Fantasy Fiction by Autistic Authors That I’m Excited to Read (2021)

I'm on a mission to read more fantasy by autistic authors. Here are the books I'm starting with.

I'm an autistic woman who's also a big reader, and one of my ongoing goals is to read more books by autistic (and other neurodivergent) authors. Since finding these authors can take some research, I'm sharing some of my finds here for you to read too!

So, for you and for me, here is a short list of books in the umbrella genre of fantasy by authors who identify as autistic.

If you have any recommendations for neurodivergent authors I should look into (or you want to pitch yourself!), I'd love to hear from you. I'm hoping to update this list often.

Sally Willbanks of ND Renegade

About Sally Willbanks: After many years spent successfully building an art career in Australia, Sally found that parenting her incredible neurodivergent children required her to homeschool them. So, she shifted her entire focus to create ND Renegade, a contemporary apparel brand that aims to "shine a light on neurodiversity."

Sally says: "We concentrate on producing quality clothing that focuses on awareness and acceptance of people's neurological differences. We aim to make neurodivergent people feel proud and own their uniqueness. We believe the discussion about neurodiversity needs to change - we not only need to be aware of differences such as autism, adhd, dyspraxia and others, we need to accept and celebrate them."

Join Sally and me today for a wide-ranging conversation about raising autistic and ADHD kids for success and happiness, homeschooling pros and cons, how she transitioned from painting to running a successful new business in just about a year's time, and why neurodiversity advocacy is so important to her.
