Melanie Reid MBE is a writer and journalist with The Times. On Good Friday, 2010, she fell from her horse, becoming paralysed from the neck down. She spent a year in hospital, determined to gain as much movement in her limbs as possible and learning to navigate through a previously invisible world. She decided that words would be her means of travel and since then has continued to write for The Times, as well as co-writing with Gregor Fisher his memoir The Boy from Nowhere. She lives in Stirlingshire.
