Mr. Anderson's words are delivered entirely sans pretense. No smoke and screens; no circuitous plot. What remains is a simple tale of goodness versus the evil of intolerance. His characters are compelled to be unguardedly honest and straight to the point. If you are looking for an intricate, word-woven story, this may not be the book for you. But, if you are interested in writing that dispenses with the fluff and unabashedly contends with the age old struggle of discrimination, then you can curl up on the couch with a cup of tea and this soft cover for a nice afternoon read. The author says "the theme of the story is that of friendship, love, compassion, and loyalty triumphing over human ignorance and prejudice." Toward that end, his delivery is unfailing.
I would do more reading and learn more about the writing style of other authors.
You have no story without conflict. You also need to develop your characters fully to make them more interesting so your audience can relate to them.
I'm not really a people person, I'm used to being by myself.
Same as question #3
I haven't really given it much though, though being a published author is quite an accomplishment for me.
I hope to someday be remembered as an individual who even despite having Asperger Syndrome, was able to fulfill his hopes and dreams and overcome all challenges he comes across.

Joshua Plofhard is one of Los Angeles's most beloved citizens. With wonderful friends, a beautiful new girlfriend, and a bright future, life couldn't get any better. But when it is discovered and revealed that he carries the DNA of a dying alien species in his body, Joshua not only finds himself ostracized, feared, and scorned by a community that once embraced him, but he is now hunted by The Prejudice, a mysterious serial killer notorious for targeting those looked down upon by society. With help from his mother Alicia, girlfriend Kimberly Derth, friends Rick Warris, Peter Christjes, Eric Blonfly, and several others who come to sympathize with his plight, Joshua realizes that there are still people who care about him, even in a world filled with prejudice.
Excerpt From PARTIALLY HUMAN
Friday, June 18th, 1999, exactly thirty days till Joshua’s nineteenth birthday.Alicia knew that she would have to tell Joshua the truth and soon. No one else knew but her.It was a beautiful morning in Los Angeles. Alicia had just started to make breakfast.Upstairs in his room, Joshua was awakened by the ringing of his alarm clock. He reached over and switched it off. Then he sat up, yawned, stretched his arms, and removed the covers. After taking off his striped pajamas, he put on a purple T-shirt, black jeans, and white socks. Then getting down on his knees, he reached under the bed, and took out a pair of white sneakers.Downstairs in the bathroom, Joshua took a comb and ran it through his hair. He put the comb down and turned on the tap. Cold water began to flow from the faucet. He scrubbed his face with soap and water, then reached for a towel to dry himself. Joshua stared at his reflection in the mirror. He had grown into a handsome young man, with blue eyes and bleached blonde hair, standing at a height of five feet and seven inches. He had become popular with the girls, although he didn’t know why.
