I write poetry a lot, as well as real-life books. My friend, who has spina bifida, and I just finished a tiny book series called the "Me and My...." series. We have wrote about life with epilepsy, spina bifida, surgery, using catheters, and hereditary spastic paraplegia.
We are in the process of writing more about other disabilities kids and teens have, like diabetes, asthma, mental retardation, cystic fibrosis, Downs Syndrome, and cerebral palsy. The local high school special ed class has been letting us interview teens living with these disabilities.
None of my stuff has been published before, but we are in the porcess of mailing our homemade books to Children's Hospital in Seattle for their lending library.
