This book will reveal what it is like to live with Asperger’s, with an Aspie in your life – someone who thinks differently to everyone else – and is thus in a vulnerable place. Throughout a life of abuse, bullying, tragic loss and social exclusion, the main character, Hartley, has to fight an almost ceaseless battle, with what he calls his ‘demon’ mind, which is his Aspie.
Aspie and Me follows this confused and tortured man throughout the development of his successful business in London’s antiques trade, his global travels in search of rare pieces, his marriage and the birth of his three children; and his lifelong search for love and appreciation.
The book tells the gripping story of Hartley looking back at his life and relationship with Aspie, who decides that the only way to achieve recognition is to commit a murder.
The author intends that his first book will reach out to help many people and give hope to those people who are challenged with similar conditions or have been labelled unnecessarily.
