Now For My Novella
I have worked directly with individuals with developmental disabilities. I have also researched actual practices and attitudes of how people with developmentally disabled were treated throughout history. I combined my fictional characters and settings with my research to compose this novella.
My purpose is to provide stability for people with developmental disabilities and to raise awareness and remove the negative stigma surrounding them.
Janet was born with a developmental disability. Like many others throughout history, she was shunned, hidden and locked away from society. Her older sister Jennifer cannot comprehend why. She loves Janet and wants to be with her.
Jennifer’s journey to be with her sister uncovers the harsh reality that people with developmental disabilities were exposed to throughout history. Can Jennifer help and make a difference for Janet and the others? Can she break the barriers and the negative stigma that have been attached to them throughout decades?
