My novella, “Headfirst Thrills on Wheels”, is finally published. Available on Amazon Kindle £3.99. Paperback not yet available on Amazon but available on lulu.com for £9.99. An account of my independent travels across the Globe as an ordinary wheelchair user. I started wheelchair Globetrotting in 2015, 13 years after sustaining head injuries in 2002 as a teenager. My greatest reward will be to inspire many and I hope you can help me share this piece. Success takes community effort and you are the community. On a professional level, the book might not be a hit but I guarantee you that it will somehow and somewhere touch the brains of think tanks.
Is independent wheelchair Globetrotting safe, espe... - Headway
There's apparently a book in all of us...……..but the hard part is getting it 'out there'. So well done Max ; I'm off to Amazon ! x
You right, I wanted to read something about, what challenges wheelchair users or disabled people in general face when travelling independently further afield. I couldn’t find it so I decided to write a book about it. I hope people will support me
Max, I can't get access to the Kindle edition whether I search on Amazon Kindle for the title or your name ?? Any suggestions ? 😧
Currently available on Amazon Kindle and lulu.com for hard copies. The other day I searched it google and it came up
Unfortunately has to be KIndle for me as I'm visually impaired and need to maximize the text. I still have shelves full of books which I can't part with but can't read either...…….
I can see the kindle edition now but for some reason it’s saying the title is not yet available for purchase. I can’t even send you a paperback because you won’t be able to read.
However earlier it was saying £3.99
I see what you saying cat3, deeply concerning, I just tried to look for it like before but can’t find it now. Will have to sort it with google and my publisher. However it should be on lulu.com
Thanks Max ; I'll take another look.

That take guts I have a progressive neurological condition and only had to use a wheelchair in the last year or so but I did my ‘big round the world trip’ when I could still walk and am thankful I did backpackers hostels were not disability friendly(maybe it’s changed in the last 10 years)...
I admire you doing it in a wheelchair can’t have been easy life as a wheelchair user takes planning which is something that I avoided as an independent traveller preferring to fly by the seat of my pants!
Can’t have been easy but however you managed it well done and will take a look at your book😀Kate
Good for you I take life a bit easier these days preferring the familiarity/safety of my home but so glad I fulfilled my travel bug when I could without the fear of falling... 😀Kate
It is still doable but depends where you go. But me I had a Headfirst experience. Some places where not accessible at all but I managed to get by. However it depends on the extent of the disability.
Not what you're looking for?
