This inspirational A5 print book tells the story of Julie as a partially sighted woman who goes blind at the age of 31. It’s not surprising, as a mother of two that Julie thinks her life has ended the day she is declared legally blind in 1997, or has it…
With side splitting stories from playing single blind Santa to refereeing her first game of nude touch rugby, find out how turning her no into why not takes Julie off the couch to living her life as a daring adventure!
As well as Julie, you’ll meet a blind man with tartan eyes, a blind woman who reads with her fingers and a sighted colleague who tricks two men with Julie’s white cane!
In this publication she has teamed up with her talented husband Ron Esplin who brings her stories to life with his wonderful water colour illustrations. “What colour should your hair be?” Ron asks Julie while he is in the studio one Friday afternoon. “Pink of course” replies Julie.
“This book encapsulates everything that Julie is. It is positive, fun, insightful, and inspiring. Be prepared to be bitten by the WHY NOT bug, because Julie’s WHY NOT philosophy is infectious!”
Dame Susan Devoy
