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,  here’s 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.

This list is for BC ADHD Awareness Week 2014 book displays in BC libraries and bookstores. It’s in addition to our list of ADHD books.

Some BC libraries and bookstores may have smaller collections of ADHD Books.

That’s one reason why we have this list of authors who have gone public with ADHD who have written non ADHD Books to enhance the displays and show library patrons what some people with ADHD can do. Some authors 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

Bryan L. Hutchinson

Caleb J Sessions

Carmine Gallo 

Clarence Page, Winner of 2 Pulitzer Prizes

Cory Doctorow

Dav Pilkey

Douglas A. Puryear

Dr. Edward Hallowell

Dr. Gabor Mate

Dr. John Ratey

Frank South

Greg Lemond

Howie Mandel 

James Carville

Jamie Oliver

Katherine Ellison Pulitzer Prize Winner

Michael Phelps 

Paul Orfelea

Rick Riordan

Robert Scoble

Seth Godin

Terry Bradshaw

Thom Hartmann

Ty Pennington

Zoe Kessler

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
