I am an ambitious millennial battling through the mental and visual haze of a brain injury. My creative work is a balance of brain injury work and unrelated projects.
Brain Injury Awareness
I intend to bring an unusual perspective and bold aesthetic style to my efforts in this sphere. Several books are planned, overlapping the territory of memoir, self-help and advocacy. I will also use my graphic skills to create full-colour information booklets for survivors in an appealing fantasy art style. Although I hope to be useful in general, I will specialise in the neglected fields of:
- Non-traumatic acquired brain injury
- Brain injury in high-IQ patients
as these are my areas of experience.
I have spent several years on the core team at Punk Writers, a writers’ collective who produce anthologies of punked stories inspired by classic works. We began with Sound And Fury: Shakespeare Goes Punk and branched out. Our latest book, Merely This And Nothing More: Edgar Allan Poe Goes Punk, won first prize in its category at the SIBA awards.
A series published on Books & Quills Magazine.
Where there are words and those who shape them, Books & Quills Magazine will be there to create an interactive world for every reader.
In this forthcoming interview series, I cast my eye on authors and characters who truly are unusual. Some were born that way; others were created or self-made. Their bold choices and skewed perspectives create a new lens to look at ourselves. By encountering what we are not, we realise what we are, and extend the repertoire and depth of our humanity.
