I’m Deborah Lovel Bryner. I have been on a journey since 1988 through the world of the autism spectrum, with our daughter Kate as my teacher and guide. Kate was diagnosed as being on the spectrum at age 15. She is now a confident young woman and has attended the University of Alaska Anchorage. She graduated from the Tapestry Program which resulted in a certificate of work readiness. Kate is an avid gamer and loves cats, movies, music and her family.

I am also a writer, artist, potter, genealogist, mother and a student of history. I married my husband Paul in 1986.
