Dyslexic Author

Looking back, it's hard to believe that I am a published writer.  I couldn't read very well... beyond just reading words, until I was nineteen.  Then one day I picked up a book and I could see the story witten there between those pages.  I couldn't get enough... I read and read, but then soon the compulsion to write became overwhelming.  I couldn't type, and when I wrote by hand, my spelling was bad and my handwriting even worse... still to this day my spelling is horrible and my handwriting changes daily.  I didn't know I was dyslexic... I was told I had motor visual---aka---dyslexia!  I actually found out I was dyslexic when I had my son tested.  I have adapted to my condition.  I write in word or use a spellcheck pop-up note on my computer to check my spelling when I write on one of the social sites, still though, I mess up now and then, but that's life.  My book The Veil by Stacy Dee came out last month through a small epublisher who prints books on demand.  I am so proud of that book... and the fact that the main character is dealing with dyslexia in high school.  Emily doesn't let the fact that she is severly dyslexic stop her from being a normal kid.  Because lets face it we are normal... we just have a glitch, like Stitch!
