9780993307003: That Special Someone

The lightest, most entertaining, of reads on a serious dilemma facing many parents of autistic teens, single parent or not. Jaya, 18, is growing up. To Izzie's alarm, all her daughter wants from life is to get married and have babies. This creates a moral dilemma for Izzie. How she can continue to protect Jaya whilst at the same time letting her go? Life as the single mum of a learning-disabled teenager is tough. But for Izzie, the boundless love she feels for her beautiful, sparky daughter is reward enough in itself, fuelling the energy she pours into fighting her child's corner. With little prospect of meaningful employment or continuing education for Jaya, Izzie wonders if perhaps finding a 'suitable husband' via an arranged marriage wouldn't be so crazy. But when Jaya falls head over heels for a teaching assistant in her college's Special Educational Needs department, it sets in motion a disastrous sequence of events which turns things around in a way that nobody could ever have foreseen. That Special Someone has to be one of the best novels about autism and the problems of single parenting ever written. "A wonderful, poignant and witty story about the life, loves and struggles of a young woman with learning difficulties." Jill Fraser, Director and Founder of Kissing It Better Healthcare Charity 'Local author's debut novel manages to combine a sensitive subject with Black Country Humour'. "Waterstones Loves", Waterstones, Walsall

About the Author:

Tanya Bullock is a college lecturer, writer and award-winning filmmaker. She lives in the West Midlands with her husband and two young children. She has a passion for foreign culture and languages (inherited from her French mother) and, in her youth, travelled extensively throughout Australia, America, Asia and Europe. As a filmmaker, she has gained local recognition, including funding and regional television broadcast, through ITV's First Cut scheme; two nominations for a Royal Television Society Midlands Award, and, in 2010, a Royal Television Society Award in the category of best promotional film. In 2008, she directed a short drama, Second Honeymoon, which was screened at the Cannes Film Festival. On maternity leave in 2011 and in need of a creative outlet, Tanya began to write That Special Someone, the story of a mother's quest to help her learning-disabled daughter find love. It is her first novel.
