Children’s Book Self-Publishing Fund
I’ve recently finished writing three children’s picture books exploring disability and I’m in search of funders to help with self-publishing. Through stories like, “Rissa and SuperDad” which describes a paralyzed father’s abilities in the eyes of his seven-year-old daughter, “Willie the Wheelchair” that tells the story of a wheelchair trying to find his own identity in the world of chairs, and “Hop Hope Hop” following a young bunny’s appreciation for being able to hop around and her acknowledgment of those who can’t, I hope to spread the knowledge of living with a disability through the next generation… our kids. In terms of funding for self-publishing, I would be willing to accept anything from loans or investments to donations in order to get this project completed, but more importantly, have it done well. Therefore, if you’re able to contribute in any way or need more information about this project, feel free to contact me or you can donate now by simply clicking the button below.
Thanks for all your support.

This was my submission to Jay-Z’s ‘I Will Not Lose’ Video Competition
Early morning August 12, 2002
We lost the Remon we once knew
I’ve had 4 years to examine the damage
To the point of now accepting this challenge
So since I can’t change what happened in 2002
And I need y’all to accept these new challenges too
“I am proud to be part of the Review Team that helped put together the SCI Guide to assist in identifying useful websites for people living with Spinal Cord Injury.”
About the SCI Guide
Taken from the SCI Guide website
If you type “Spinal Cord Injury” into a search engine, you will get over 900,000 web pages about spinal cord injury! How do you search through all of this and find valid sources that give you what you need when you need it — without tearing your hair out?!?!
We created The SCI Guide because nothing out there gives the SCI community a place to go to get trusted, peer-reviewed info, and to decide for yourselves which sites are the best. The SCI Guide brings together the best websites on SCI chosen by you for you, and it’s easy to use. Nothing can take the place of the experiences of other people with SCI.
To start things out right, The New England Regional Spinal Cord Injury Center (NERSCIC) at Boston Medical Center assembled a team of people with SCI to review and rate websites, based on things like quality of information and user-friendliness. We picked people with all different ages, race/ethnicities, gender, experience, and level of injury for the review team. Click here to meet the team!
What do you see when you stare at a wheelchair?
A physical prison nobody wants to live in
It isn’t fair that some people try to compare
When we all have a different life challenge to bear
Besides the truth is a lot of people use this
As a form of transportation to go, it may be someone you know
Your friend, your spouse, your father, your mother
A coworker, classmate, sister or brother
No matter the relation people always rediscover
How you still shouldn’t ever judge a book by its cover
And when you read through my pages
You’ll realize that for me a cage is
Not what you see, but what you allow it to be
