About the Author

Barbara Moran is a graphic artist from Topeka, Kansas, who was not diagnosed with autism until she was in her early 40s. She has spoken at autism conferences, and her artwork has been exhibited by Visionaries + Voices, at Bryn Mawr's annual Art Ability show, and at the MIND Institute at the University of California-Davis. Barbara's art often focuses on personified objects such as locomotives, stoplights, and cathedrals. Barbara shares her home with her companion of forty years, Rooney, a 1934 Monitor Top GE refrigerator.
