I woke up in Intensive Care with a ventilating tube down my throat
"A truly inspiring story that takes you with Iain on his journey from a near death incident through a long, difficult and challenging recovery. A beautifully written work that also injects humour into a serious situation." Amazon.com
“Thursday, June 15, 2017, will be embedded in my memory forever,” says author Iain MacLeod.
“I greeted the summer day eager to face the world with my usual free-spirited independence, and ended the day lying in the Intensive Care unit of a hospital in Aberdeen, Scotland, with a ventilating tube down my throat. Billions of people get out of bed every day without any problem, and that had been true my entire life despite being a wheelchair user with Cerebral Palsy since the age of three. But when I got out of bed that fateful morning, everything went horribly wrong.”
In his book 10 Seconds That Changed My Life, Iain inspires with his realistic, heartfelt writing and original poems of his beloved Scotland. He captures the various stages of his hospital experience as well as his personal journey through joy and sorrow, frustration and elation, and the reality of coming home to a new normal.
By writing and publishing this book, he hopes to encourage those with special needs to never give up, and to always remember that they are able, not disabled, and have unique abilities to share with the world.

A turbulent childhood is at the root of what went on to be an equally turbulent adulthood for Daniel. Like so many others, his abuse begun at home. With no fixed father figure and a physically abusive mother, what should be pleasant memories were turned into nightmarish recollections.
Social Services soon intervened and at the age of 13 and he was placed in a children’s home. Whilst places like children’s homes are created for the protection of children it seems as though they can often be a breeding ground for the abuse and manipulation of children. His experience with a number of institutions that were put in place to prevent the harm of children has proved that there is a blatant betrayal of trust by those put in a position of authority.
The lack of moral backbone that such systems employed left him and a number of other children confused about authority and the law – a defective trait that led to misguided criminal activity during our youths.
His never dying determination and love for his wife made him turn the things around. He is a living proof that no matter how bad it gets, there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

This story is about what it's like to have a disorder, but not discover it until life catches up with you.
UGH, is my story as a teen with Epilepsy about the challenges life has brought to me. It mostly revolves around but is not limited to the social impact. I talk about my journey to self awareness by talking about how I eventually made friends, how I dealt with siblings and family, learning to drive, adjusting to high school, conquering academic pressure, jumping the hurdle of bad teachers and much more. While any teen in this generation doesn’t necessarily have to have a disorder to have these feelings and thoughts, they aren’t widely spoken either. Instead they are shoved under the rug.
This story shows the progression of how I’ve become the person I am today, because I’ve become who I am by going above and beyond.

Everything that we hear surrounding motherhood portrays a beautiful, nurturing, and a powerful bond that cannot be broken by any human being, or length of time. Nonetheless, this idealism is not the case for all mothers.
From her earliest memories at four years old, Callie Flinn began to notice that her mother differed greatly from the others around her.
Callie’s school friends had mums who were kind, warm, and selfless in nature, whereas Callie’s mother, Donna Flinn, was only able to mimic this behaviour in public. In private, Donna’s true and sinister identity would regularly emerge. Instead of providing care and an abundance of love for her daughter, Donna began to carry out wilful acts of spite, which included using violence, severe neglect, and intolerance towards her preschool child. Callie is parentified; she is used by her own mother and heavily burdened by Donna’s erratic and volatile emotional outbursts. Callie is unable to process the world around her and therefore, she begins to feel unsafe on a daily basis; Callie lives, day to day; in flight mode. She does not receive comfort from her mother; however, the expectation is for her, a small child, to provide this for Donna. Slowly, Callie begins to hear the same message repeated loud and clear, that her feelings do not matter and that she is to put the needs of everyone else around her first.
The situation would only become worst for Callie, as her mother and father split and Donna begins a new relationship with Allan.
