Melanie Walsh studied at Harrow School of Art and the Royal College of Art. She has now written over forty children's books, which include My Green Day, Ten Things I Can Do to Help My World,Living with Mum and Living with Dad and Goodbye Grandma. Melanie says, "This is the book my son didn't have when he was young. I wanted to write a book that explained Asperger's Syndrome to classmates, friends and relatives in a simple, gentle and positive way. Children who have ASD do have challenges, but also many amazing strengths." Melanie lives with her family in Bath.
