Anthony Ridgway made this video to demonstrate how he writes his children’s books Wizzy the Animal Whisperer and Wizzy and the Seaside Adventure.
Because Anthony has cerebral palsy and is partially sighted he writes using a computer programme that enables him to find the keys on a large keyboard with the computer speaking out each letter, number and space when he presses the relevant key.
Using Dolphin Guide on his PC, Anthony writes for an hour or two each day. It is a laborious process … as Anthony says, “Because I only write with one finger, it takes me about a year to write a book.”
Although the process of writing is laborious, Anthony brings adventure and a witty freshness to his stories that will have you laughing out loud.
