Hi, my name is John Bartlett. I was born in Sussex in 1955 and I’m probably best known as a former racing driver and team owner from the 1980s.
I have a diagnosed condition of Autism Spectrum Disorder. I also have a number of other clinically diagnosed learning disabilities, including profound dyslexia and ADHD, which means I’m constantly bombarded with thoughts and ideas.
Autism is a life long development disorder, typically diagnosed in early childhood, but in my case, my condition (High Functioning Autism – HFA) was not clinically diagnosed until July 2017, at the age of 62. In 2010 my first novel, Chequered Justice, was published, a legal thriller based on my own true story. Dark Horse is my latest book, a prequel to Chequered Justice.
