Description : Written by Twylia G. Reid, Broken Wings is a true story of a mother's unwavering love and courage for her son in the aftermath of a car accident. Main character, Mylon, was in all respects a bright young man on track towards the future he imagined when his life changed forever. Reid walks readers through accounts of emotional struggle and moments of despair following the accident. She shares the pain of her son's TBI diagnosis; and her commitment to support him through recovery and learning to live anew. Like Reid's family, many families have been hit with unexpected events leading to the question, “... What just happened?” According to the CDC, “Approximately 5.3 million Americans are living with a TBI-related disability and the consequences of severe TBI can affect all aspects of an individual's life. This can include relationships with family and friends, as well as their ability to work or be employed, do household tasks, drive, and/or participate in other activities of daily living.” Despite being a non-fiction, Broken Wings is memorable. It has all the elements of an inspiring read from gripping truths and descriptive imagery to finding hope. This is a story that will leave an unforgettable mark on the minds of readers.

Steve Catto
About: Steve Catto is an old man, or at least that's what it says on his birth certificate. He was born in Yorkshire, but his parents took him to Australia when he was six years old and he grew up there, sometimes racing cars across the desert.

He was never very good at school, but the one thing he did learn was how to learn, and he started writing programs for the computer at the local university, much to the disdain of his teachers who told him that he would ‘never make a living out of that rubbish'. In his late teens he returned to the UK, and his parents followed him – which wasn't what he wanted because he was hoping to get away from them. His first proper job was in the computer department of an infamous Oxford publishing company, and he subsequently went on to write software for electricity control systems, and simulators for the military. He started to fly gliders and wrote programs to analyse the data from aircraft flight recorders, where he also learned to fly, and crash, lots of other types of aircraft as well – which was the best part of the job. At various times in his career he has also lived and worked in France, Switzerland, and Canada, and he now lives in Scotland. Since appearing in school plays as a child he has performed almost continuously on the amateur stage, and spent a few years scuba diving. These two things have nothing to do with each other. In terms of his pedigree as an author he has written many technical manuals and filled in countless timesheets, so is well versed in the art of conjuring up works of fiction, however he has never written a novel before, especially not one that involves a blonde girl and a man with a bow and arrow, but he did once spend three weeks working in a factory that made handles for buckets.
