How I Write by Anthony Ridgway

‘How I Write’ click here to watch the video

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.

Narnia the real place

Did you know Narnia is a real place in central Italy?

Very few people know that the real place, Narni, in Umbria, Italy, provided inspiration for C S Lewis’s most famous book.

How did this happen?
View the video by Dave Knowles to learn about the history of Narni and why C S Lewis chose this special hilltop town for The Chronicles of Narnia. See the tallest man-made waterfall in the world and learn why they were created by the Romans. Also find out about The Rocca, the castle overlooking Narni that was so important to the Roman Catholic church. Perhaps C S Lewis found a link to the character of Lucy from the story of St Lucia who was born in Narni and at the age of five saw the Virgin Mary and the baby Jesus. St Lucia’s body lies today in a glass coffin in the Cathedral St. Giovanale.
