I'm Maxfield Michael Xavier Sparrow (formerly Sparrow Rose Jones) and I'm Autistic.
I write and speak to Autistic adults, in solidarity and with the message that you are not alone and you are not broken, and to family and mentors of Autistic children, because I don't want the children of today to spend tomorrow going through the things I lived through yesterday.
I am transgender and am beginning to write more about my experiences and feelings about gender, particularly the intersection of autism and transgender issues.
I travel the United States in my minivan, The Escape Pod. As I travel, I write, offer readings and presentations, and spread the apple seeds of understanding, acceptance, and celebration.
