Adonya Wong has not received any gifts yet
Adonya Wong attended Suffield University in Twin Falls, Idaho where she received a Bachelor’s of Arts in Business Administration.
She began writing short stories and poems at a young age and finds she writes her best through the inspiration of her loved ones. In My Mind: The World through the Eyes of Autism (Tate Publishing, 2008) is her first book. It was pre-released in October 2008 and released worldwide on January 6, 2009.
In My Mind creatively explores, through the form of a children’s picture book, the inner world of an autistic child… the world no one else seems to see. From exciting adventures to silly games and conversations with a range of imaginary friends, the main character of the story, inspired by her son, Nicholas, brings readers into his world to demonstrate how a child with autism sees the world, and, in turn, how the world often sees a child with autism.
Adonya’s primary motivation for writing such a book stemmed from the most basic recognition that there was a scarcity of literature directed to and written for autistic children and their families.
It is her intention, through her work, to encourage readers to want to learn more about the autism disorder. In My Mind was written to help raise awareness about autism, and she hopes that the reader will gain a deeper sense of compassion and tolerance for those “different” than themselves.
When she heads the community-based nonprofit which she founded, M.O.C.H.A. – Mothers of Color for Holistic Alternatives.
Adonya lives in Southern California with her son where she enjoys spending time with family and friends, traveling, watching classic movies, and curling up with a good book.
A portion of the author’s proceeds benefit various autism organizations in the United States and Canada.
