Introducing Belonging Together

 
 
Devon Ray Hillary   My name is Devon Hillary; I am a new debut author of 2016. I was born in Bronx, New York U.S.A. (North America) as a Jamaican-Caribbean descendent. I graduated High School in 2006 with a full High School diploma, and graduated out of College in 2013 as a Bachelor in Music. And speaking of music, I am an instrumental musician who plays the piano organ, and keyboard. I planned to publish my recorded music, someday or sooner or later, if God's willing.  My first new book, an autobiography, which I created myself about my special-need life, is not only to pick up and read, but to know what type of person I am, overall, especially along with my autism and mild intellectual disability all my life, since at two-and-a-half years of age. The paperback versions was first published on July 18, 2016, and then the electronic versions first published on August 13, 2016.  You can purchase his book on amazon  here
