author dyslexia iain mckinnon sci-fi Sep 05, 2022

Becoming a SciFi Author with dyslexia makes more sense than you think. Iain McKinnon shares his story of how writing on a computer released his writing capability. He started with a short fun DIY film and then was encouraged by his friends to write a screenplay for the story. It became a self-published book picked up by a publishing house specializing in Sci-fi zombie films!

If your child is really good at making up stories then this will give practical everyday inspiration for you and your child’s future.

It's a fascinating story of how Iain discovered tech as a way to release his creative potential.

“With a degree in Psychology, qualifications in Neuro Linguistic Programming and profoundly dyslexic Iain’s writing is approachable, fast-paced and visceral.”
