Supporting My Book In The Pandemic

So, the UK had already agreed to leave the EU when my book Cerebral Palsy: ‘A Story’ was officially published by @ReddoorBooks in January 2020; in March 2020 we were also dealing with Covid-19 …

Truth wins in the end

My Book is based on my story. It has taken courage for me to write about my disability and my experiences in my book: Cerebral Palsy ‘A Story’ Finding the Calm after the Storm. It wasn’t an easy book to write.

I could have gone along with what my family wanted, not look into, or write about or learn about my disability, or my symptoms, but that would have continued to keep me in the dark. I cared too much, but I …

My Book of many questions

It became clear the more I struggled the more I couldn’t live without knowing what my disability was. I say it again that I thought I would have to go to the grave without knowing. Mentally what does that do to a child?

Dealing with a disability is physically and mentally draining. Add not knowing what you deal with into the equation and it goes …

My Writing Journey

Although my disability is responsible for my writing journey, I am humbled by the fact that I have done well in spite of what happened to me.

As I write, going through my past, present and future in my mind, are all happening right now. As the American writer and Nobel Prize Laureate, William Faulkner recalled, “the past is never dead; it’s not …

Writing intent

Writing my book although cathartic, was difficult; not a decision taken lightly, but coming to a realisation that without writing about my disability, I would still not know about my disability today.

I needed to get past just knowing I had a bad leg and foot. I needed to know about my mental and emotional struggles, why I was failing and why I got to this place without knowing. I needed to bring my life together …

My Book shows us how

My Book shows we can all change our lives that just because we start one way doesn’t mean we have to continue the same way. As I have changed my own life, my book shows you how you can change your life too.
