Elno's Clown William series was inspired by the work of neurologist Oliver Sacks, who wrote about the unusual speed and accuracy often displayed by people with Tourette's syndrome. Intrigued by the idea that strengths can rise from differences, Elno created the unique and compelling character of William. Elno's novels are often set against true historical backdrops like the Wild West. Follow the author at
