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 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.

Its a facinating story of how Iain descovered 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.”
