An inspiring man

I have a pretty cool job. I get to talk to all sorts of people and write stories about important points in their lives, and writing is what I love. But sometimes it can get hard when you're pushed for time and you've got three stories and a feature to write in an hour. Then you get a phone call from a lovely old man you wrote a story about thanking you for the story and telling you what a great job you did. At the end of the day, that's what makes it worth it.

So I would like to introduce you to Stephen Davies, author of The Dolphin Enigma. He is a retired Masterton man who has suffered two strokes, but was determined to prove that there is life after a stroke, so wrote a book. I haven't read the book yet, but it's sitting on my desk amongst the pile of other books I have to read (almost finished Pride and Prejudice I promise). It's a story of New Zealand politics, war, and what if's... read about it here.
