Background Information

Author of In My Mind: The World through the Eyes of Autism, an endearing tale about how a child with autism sees the world... and how the world sees him.

Adonya Wong attended Suffield University in Twin Falls, Idaho where she received a Bachelor’s of Arts in Business Administration.

She has a diverse professional background and has worked in several industries such as banking, telecommunications, sales, healthcare, and nonprofit management. The majority of her experience lies in executive level administration and project management. She is also a veteran of the United States Navy; having served in Iceland and Maryland. After being honorably discharged in 1991, she served with the California Air National Guard for four years.

Adonya 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 and will be available 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 is not writing, she homeschools her son and heads the Tulsa-based nonprofit which she founded, M.O.C.H.A. – Mothers of Color for Holistic Alternatives.

Adonya lives in northeastern Oklahoma with her family where she enjoys spending time with her family and friends, traveling, watching classic movies, and curling up with a good book.

A portion of the author’s proceeds benefit Tulsa Autism Foundation!
