I have been in the media industry for the last 30 years as a writer, video editor and director for broadcast television.
Several years ago I had the privilege of producing and directing a documentary for an adventure tour company specialising in tours for people living with spinal cord injury. It was an experience I will never forget. During filming, I realised that many people who live without disability or mobility issues have little idea of what it is like to live in a world full of barriers and obstacles - both in their physical environment and in the minds of other people. From that realisation the idea for Spinalmap was developed through many late-night conversations and soul searching discussions about whether or not people cared and how much they needed to know; about what would be too much information and what would be too intimate.
The result is a book that has been welcomed by a leading rehabilitation practitioner as being essential reading for people who have recently suffered spinal cord injury and all those who have contact with people living with SCI.
