About the Author
At the age of fifteen Melanie Davies was involved in a motorcycle accident that left her paralysed from the chest down. Since then her life has never been the same, and in the years that followed she endured a huge amount of pain and suffering.
However, she has also, against all odds, won medals in athletics for her country, raised thousands of pounds for charity and set up her own rehabilitation charity.
Lynne Barrett-Lee was born in London and became a full time writer shortly after moving to Cardiff in 1994. She is the author of seven novels.
She is a regular guest broadcaster on BBC Radio Wales and also writes a popular weekly column for the Western Mail Newspaper's Saturday Magazine.
