Never Say Never brings together two broken characters and gives them the space to heal through each other, despite the challenges and obstacles in their paths. With a keen eye for character development and a deft hand at creating tension and conflict, West has written a wonderful story of learning to allow yourself to love and be loved. I couldn’t have chosen a better book as my first experience with contemporary romance than Never Say Never.
Hello all, and welcome to this week’s article for FanFiAddict’s series on Neurodivergence in Fiction. I cannot understate how appreciative I am for the overwhelming amount of support and enthusiasm I have seen for this series of mine; thank you! For the next several months we will be bringing you a guest post every Wednesday from a neurodivergent author. This will hopefully highlight some of the challenges that come with writing for a largely neurotypical audience, while also giving valuable insight to the craft itself and providing a window into the neurodivergent experience — at least through the lens of fiction. For this week’s article, romance author Fiona West stops by with a bunch of helpful tips for determining if ND representation is good representation and a few good examples of neurodivergent rep in romance.
