About Mel Baggs

Hufflepuff. Came from the redwoods, which tell me who I am and where I belong in the world. I relate to objects as if they are alive, but as things with identities and properties all of their own, not as something human-like. Culturally I'm from a California Okie background. Crochet or otherwise create constantly, write poetry and paint when I can. Proud member of the developmental disability self-advocacy movement. I care a lot more about being a human being than I care about what categories I fit into.

  1. Hi. I didn’t know Luke Jackson had a new book out. And I didn’t know Stillman had written so many.

    I’m glad Tito has written a new storybook, and that Johnathan Lerman and Gilles Trehin get to display their drawings. We haven’t had any picture books since Stephen Wiltshire. It might encourage and inspire a lot of autistic children and teenagers to know that visions like theirs are out there.

    Who’s Cowhey?

  2. All I know about Cowhey is she wrote Going Through the Motions.

    In terms of pictures, Not Just Anything by Donna Williams (both the old and new versions) and Overcoming Autism by Georgiana Thomas both included visual art. Georgiana Thomas has a detailed and precise style, when drawing cities, much like Stephen Wiltshire and Gilles Tréhin. (I think she was an art major, and possibly also considered a savant, but I can’t remember.) Wendy Lawson’s ASPoetry has a little art.

    And one other book that’s almost entirely art is An Exact Mind, some of which resembles some of my own art.

  3. We got an email from Donna last week updating the info on our book list and adding her new title. She asked us to link to the listings of her books on the Jessica Kingsley website (we did, while retaining the links) because the publishers’ editions of these books can be hard to get. So I’m passing that on.

  4. Okay. I’m not sure if I’m going to end up doing that or not, the main reason being that I’ve contemplated linking all the books, but that then gets way too complicated, and I’m not sure whether linking just one author’s books (when a good chunk of those books on my list are from JKP) makes sense. I’ve tried (although obviously not kept up well) to link authors’ names to their personal websites if they have one, though.

  5. Hi. If you are wondering who Sharon Cowhey is
    you can read about me in my book. I am new to
    the author world. Thanks, Sharon
