Wheels Galore! Adaptive Cars, Wheelchairs, and a Vibrant Daily Life with Cerebral Palsy, is a memoir of my life as a disabled wheelchair user and my sheer determination to overcome all obstacles. From early childhood into my teen years and adulthood, I was not going to let my disability get in the way of my ambitions or goals. Usually that was in the form of going as fast as I could on anything with wheels — my various wheelchairs, my tricycle, my battery car, and several wheelchair-adapted cars ever since! In this book I describe all the amusing situations I’ve found myself in along the way, and how I’ve educated myself up to PhD standard. I to inspire children and adults of any age to rise above the perceived limitations of disability and live life their way with grace, guts, and gusto!
Here is a sample from the audiobook of Wheels Galore! narrated by Scottish actor Tony McGeever.
This is from Chapter 13 where I tell a funny story of how my friends and I decided to attend a sponsored walk dressed as the characters from The Wizard of Oz.
Wasn't I a gorgeous Dorothy? Believe that and you can believe anything!
