AYR WRITERS’ CLUB is delighted to promote the publication of “MIXED BLESSINGS” by former member Sonya Hill.
Sonya lives with cerebral palsy and her book takes the reader on her extraordinary journey, from her birth to a three-year-old who could only communicate with her mother, and onwards.
Having found support at The Victoria School, Northfield, Birmingham, which provided tailor-made education, she then moved on to student life at Dudley College, where she studied IT, English language, cookery, and art.
The book also charts the types of technology Sonya depended upon over the years, the earliest of which was a POSSUM typewriter (Patient Operated Selector Mechanism) for her school homework, before moving on to using current keyboards adapted to accommodate her single thumb typing. Twenty years in the writing, this book reflects a lifetime of determination.
Sonya is an inspiration to us all.
