You may have seen Simon at Art Walks, Farmer's Markets, Love our Local Fest, and other places in the Northwest, including Valleyfest in September in Spokane Valley. "In 2002, while still in high school, I moved to Australia to follow my dream of playing rugby. After my third game of the season, I was injured in a scrum which left me with C5/6 quadriplegia. After graduating from The Evergreen State College, I spent most of my time volunteering with preschool children who inspired me to write about 'The Adventures of Frank and Mustard.'
"The book features Frank, a dog who uses a wheelchair and his best buddy Mustard. I wrote this book series so that I could share my experiences of living with quadriplegia. I also created it to spread more disability awareness in children's books to inspire kids to have a positive mindset, and to empower students who are facing tough challenges. During my presentation, which will be via Skype since I live in Olympia, I share my personal story by using videos and music, and allow time for students to ask me questions about my disability."
