Creating an authentic voice

It's been a busy time at uni with my dissertation due in September. I've been looking at how to create an authentic character voice in historical fiction. The use of dialect can take the place of substance and I've been addressing it by absorbing myself in 1950s culture. You Tube videos, films, websites. All these help when attempting to create Cynthia's voice. My MA dissertation looks at female autistic voices...there's very few in contemporary literature as most have male voices. Female autism is very different from male autism and I'm hoping to portray this in Nancy's voice. She's only 8 but she's intelligent and quick-witted and her interior world rocks!

I leave you with a video of Sarah Hendickx talking about autism in girls and women
