Norwich woman with Asperger syndrome becomes published author – Eastern Daily Press

[responsivevoice_button voice=”UK English Female” buttontext=”Listen to Post”]

Jenine Sherwood from Heathgate, Norwich, began her debut novel The Black Feathered Angel following a recurring dream about an angel with black feathers.

Penned and illustrated by the 26-year-old, the book follows the only black feathered angel to be accepted by his rainbow feathered peers.

The colourful sketches and hopeful narrative grabbed the attention of international publishers Austin Maccauley, who contacted her by email to offer a print contract.

Ms Sherwood said: “I was excited to get it published and they took the first draft of the book. It’s nice to see it in an actual book.”

The author was diagnosed with aspergers and dyslexia as a child and her mother, Carol Sherwood, said the youngster had to use a one on one reader and scribe to sit her GCSEs at Flegg High School.

Aspergers is a condition on the autistic spectrum and typically affects how people communicate and interact with others.

For Jenine, this means everyday life can be difficult so she uses a support dog, Magic, to stay calm in public situations.
