The acclaimed Scottish author and agency client Eric Sinclair has received regional media coverage after winning third place in this year’s Independent Author Award, an annual contest run by Walking for the Wounded, a charity that supports injured servicemen and women.

Sinclair was left paralysed and unable to communicate after suffering a stroke in his sleep, and spent nearly five months in hospital.

Despite doctors’ fears he would be confined to a wheelchair, the 66-year-old has made a “near-miraculous” recovery. During his recovery, he wrote Man, Dog, Stroke to help other survivors and to provide medical professionals with a patient’s perspective.

The competition is run by Walking for the Wounded, a charity that supports injured servicemen and women.

His story appeared in the print and digital editions of the Press and Journal.
