A Little About Me


Hello, I’m Jennifer, a published author and a single mom to a beautiful little girl. She is full of energy and has taught me a lot about Autism and those with Special Needs. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Anthropology. I’m also a US Navy brat and a US Navy Veteran. Even though I’ve traveled a lot as a child, it has become something that I actually still enjoy doing.

I do enjoy reading and writing every genre, so I may mostly blog about my daughter and the things she’s done, like the toilet paper disaster, I will also blog about the latest novel I have read or that I have written, or a children’s picture book that I’m currently writing.

I have had one children’s picture book published, which is available for purchase online on Amazon or a growing list of paperbacks and/or ebooks that I have written, to which can be found on my webpage: www.twistedcrowpress.com

When my daughter was two, she was diagnosed with Autism, along with having hyper-kinesis and delayed development, as well as a sensory processing disorder. I had since had her retested and it seems as if her recent diagnosis was added onto; Autism, ADD and a learning disability, a short term memory problem, and a sensory processing disorder. The hyper-kinesis was changed into ADD. Her delayed development was changed into a learning disability with a short term memory problem.

Her diagnosis has given me a new outlook on things, such as patience and the ability to see things from her point of view. I am thankful for the insights, suggestions, and the many helpful tips that has been given to me by those who are familiar with Autism and children on the Spectrum.

Thank you for checking out my blog. Hope you have a blessed Day!

        I can imagine you are. You have a beautiful family! 🙂 I’m sure they’ll be happy to have you home as well. It’s a little tough transitioning to civilian life at first, but you get used to it after awhile.

      Thank you! I do enjoy your blog. I have actually been to Dubai, though it has been a few years ago. Interesting place. I didn’t go out and see much as it was during the summer and I was in the military.

      Thank you for the link! I originally bought a kindle HD fire for myself for school, but after downloading a few educational apps for my daughter, it eventually became her tablet. I’m always looking for new things to download for her on her kindle.
