About Me

Hi, my name is Patricia and I'm a fangirl. I live in Northern California with my husband, our daughter, my mother, three cats and two fish.

I'm in my late 30s and believe I am somewhere on the autism spectrum (no official diagnosis as of now). I realized it as an adult, because my child is autistic (diagnosed). The more I learned about her brain and how it works, the more my own life made sense. That's partly where this domain name comes from. There's a joke almost in the community about "savant" skills. We don't all have them, but it's a common stereotype. If there is something I'm very good at, it's fixating on my fandoms.

Twitter Updates

I tweet as @FandomSavant with updates about my various fanlistings and shrines.
