I was excited to record my first ever podcast interview with Caroline Sanderson from ALCS - The Authors' Licensing and Collecting Society.
We talked about how I became established as a writer and the challenges I've faced in an industry that is centred around well and non-disabled people.
I explained how to be a good ally to writers experiencing disability or chronic illness and the role that community plays in raising the voices of a vastly overlooked group.
You can listen to the podcast here or wherever you get your regular podcasts from. Just search for Authors' Matters by ALCS, Season 2, episode 7.
Claire Wade is the winner of the Good Housekeeping Novel Competition and author of The Choice. She was bed bound for six years with severe ME, trapped in a body that wouldn't do what she wanted. She now writes about people who want to break free from the constraints of their lives, a subject she's deeply familiar with.
