Another creative outlet for me is writing. I am working on a dark novel about the spiralling mental health of a young man, I have written poetry about mental health that has been shared by various charities and I will soon have my first children’s picture book published by Austin Macauley Publishers.
The bRave Little Flimp
Freddie the flimp doesn't fit the mould. On first glance, he may look like all the other flimps, but his curious limp is what the use to define him.
They say Freddie can't do what they can do. They say he's not as strong or as fast or as smart or as brave.
But when strength and bravery are needed the most, it's the flimp with a curious limp that proves everybody wrong.
About The Brave Little Flimp:
Back in 2012 I was fortunate enough to go and see the Paralympics in London. I was one of 80,000 people cramming the Olympic Stadium that day, and like many others, I was inspired by their athleticism, ability and resilience.
I wrote The Brave Little Flimp when I got home that day in attempt to highlight to children that being disabled doesn’t always mean you are less able. It was picked up by the publishers in 2018 and is due for release in May 2019.
