Inspirational Indie Author Interview. Tessa Buckley: New Life as an Author After MS Diagnosis

My ALLi author guest this episode is Tessa Buckley, who had a successful career working with architects and designers until she developed multiple sclerosis and had to rethink everything about her life. This led to research about the proper diet to prevent the progression of MS, which in turn led to a brand-new writing career. Today, she writes middle-grade adventure stories and, she says, there's no better time to be a disabled author. I'll let Tessa Buckley tell her story.

  1. Having known Tessa for some years now through the writing group we both attend at Leigh-on-Sea and thus having heard some of her back story, hearing her relate the story through this podcast was so good. She presents very clearly and precisely and fills in some gaps. So, thank you ALLI and Howard for this opportunity and every good wish to Tessa for her writing career.
