Walking Through Snow is the book I'm writing about my experience being paralyzed from the neck down. In 1992. I suffered a freak accident that left me a temporary quadriplegic. I also suffered extensive brain damage that left me depressed and confused. The book is about my recovery, my battle with medical authorities, and what it takes to recover from a serious accident or illness. And unlike many other books in this genre (My Stroke of Insight, Time On Fire, Over My Head), this book also deals with the onset of full-blown Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome many years after the accident.
It is an evocative memoir of struggle and eventual victory over manifold difficulties. It's also an indictment of the close-minded and arrogant medical establishment.
I am still working on the manuscript, and hope to be done in 2012 and then to find a publisher. In the mean time, here is the book proposal and two chapters for those who are interested.
