Willam McGinn has been creating for as long as he could remember from writing the Sly Cooper book series to voiceover work, book and film reviews and so much more. Willam was born with what was thought to be Aspergers Syndrome was later diagnosed as autism , the difference between the two being those with Autism are more likely to experience communication delays while those with Aspergers Syndrome may be more socially awkward but, this varies from case to case. While there is an entire spectrum of challenges associated with Autism, after reading Luke Jackson's "Freaks,Geeks and Aspergers Syndrome: A User Guide to Adolescence Willam decided regardless of wether he has Aspergers Syndrome, or Autism he was born with a gift that should be celebrated and cherished. Five novels later Willam's career continues to show upwards as he preforms in community theatre plays around the Kawartha Lakes area. William is a shining example of what all individuals disabled, on the spectrum or from any any background can achieve so, The next time you see someone who may be struggling or you might consider to be odd or weird please remember all of us have something beautiful to offer the world even if it can be hard to find.
