Hi! I'm quiet, quirky, and bright. My name is Sarah Nannery. I'm a cis-gender woman, mother, and writer. I have suspected all my life, and now know, that I am Autistic.


Recently I have begun to explore this aspect of my life more deeply.

This website and blog are the public side of that exploration, where I am sharing my own experiences in the hope that others who are on a similar path will find resources and common ground. If there's something I can help you with, let me know!


I would love to hear from you. Your message will land in my email and I will respond in kind.
