Both. Seriously, both. My novels are about kids who have autism. I might start with a composite of hundreds of autistic children I've known or read about. Then I play the "what if" game and the plots spring from there.
For these books I wanted to provide a light, entertaining read while at the same time showing strategies that work at home and at school to help kids with have autism.
