Update. Thanks to those emailing me & commenting with new authors. As I get new authors with ADHD I’ll add them below
As a follow up to my post on The Top 11 Advantages To Having ADHD As A Writer, I have a list of some Authors who have gone public with having Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and who’ve written non ADHD Books. I.e., books about other topics than ADHD. ADHD can be a competitive edge for a writer. I would like more names for that list. Here’s why.
My Vancouver Adult ADD Support Group volunteers and our partners are organizing
77 80 ADHD book displays in Libraries and bookstores in 23 BC cities for BC ADHD Awareness Week in the Lower Mainland. The theme of 2013’s ADHD Awareness week is Get Real About ADHD. Learn the: Facts, Myths, Stigma and Economic Impacts. Check out our cool poster
Some libraries and bookstores may have smaller collections of ADHD Books. That’s one reason why we’d have a longer list of authors who have gone public with ADHD who have written non ADHD Books to enhance the displays. Some of them have also written ADHD Books, some have not.
Here is the list of Author’s who have confirmed they have ADHD who’ve written non-ADHD books
Clarence Page, Winner of 2 Pulitzer Prizes
Katherine Ellison Pulitzer Prize Winner
And we’re not even talking about the many high profile bloggers who have ADHD too although some people on that list blog too.
Do you know any more author’s who’ve gone public with ADHD vs. you think they’re ADHD, that has written NON ADHD BOOKS? I.e., a topic that is NOT ADHD that you could add to this list? We don’t need books on the topic of ADHD because the libraries will already put them up on display. Or know someone else who might know?
If you do, please let me know in the comments below. Thanks
