Bill Bob Buttonsabout this book: Simon is very different to Isabella. He's all elbowy and clumsy. She, on the other hand, is elegant and cool. He's the school chess champ and has the IQ of a chemistry professor. She thinks flowers grow better if you feed them Bic Macs and play them Elvis songs. He has a 1/500 scale model of the Starship Enterprise NCC-1701 in his bedroom. She thinks it's a frying pan.
Isabella has a secret.
Simon, well, he IS the secret...

I wrote I Think I Murdered Miss over two years. Why is it different? Well, Simon, the hero of the book, has Aspergers. It is when a person finds it difficult to tell others what they need and how they feel. They also find it difficult to know how others feel and what is the 'normal' thing to do. Often, but not always, a person with Asperger's can be very, very clever and can have overly-strong interests. Simon, for example, is obsessed by Star Trek. Having a central character with this 'problem' was a challenge for me as a writer. I wanted to show my young readers that anybody, even a young boy suffering from Aspergers, could be the hero in a book. I hope I succeeded...
