Stephen Draycott was just 19 when he spun into a large tree between Polebrook and Ashton, near Oundle, 13 years ago.

The resulting injuries, including Acquired Brain Injury, left him weak down the right-hand side of his body and needing to have a section of his skull taken out.

Stephen, who lived for many years in Oundle, works as part of the therapy team at PJ Care which has a care centre in Eagle Wood, Bretton.

Copies of Stephen’s book, entitled ‘Rehab to Rehab’, are available from The Oundle Bookshop in Market Place, Oundle.

The author will also be signing copies of his self-published book at the store on Saturday, May 14 from 10.30am to 12.30pm.

Stephen said his one wish from writing his book is for families going through something similar to find comfort from the words inside.

He added: “It’s taken me two-and-a-half years to write. It’s been a very therapeutic process. ”
