    Yes, sure. I have two children. I have a wonderful girlfriend, now after many years of being alone. I'm trying to write a novel even though I have learning disabilities. When people tell me I can't I mostly tell them I can. I did not want my disabilities to affect my children so try and stay positive, not always easy. When I'm not writing I raise money for good causes and try to bring a little kindness back into the world. I am a giant nerd and a big Supernatural fan. I was assaulted at the last Convention I went to but we have come up with the idea of starting a blog to help those people that don't understand disabilities. You can't fight hate with hate after all. Yeah, that's me not exciting.
