Sue Pepper at Sittingbourne Library
Sue Pepper, author of 'Life After Death', will be at Sittingbourne Library on Friday 8th September discussing her new book. Sue will be available for book signings and to answer any questions you may have. She will also be doing a reading from 'Life After Death'. Always energetic – hockey at school, badminton, swimming – Sue Pepper didn’t realise something was going wrong with her body until her late thirties when periods of tiredness became unusually long. Symptoms began to include muscle spasms and pins and needles in her limbs forcing her to give up her passion for badminton and restricting her to line judging at major tournaments. Sue Pepper’s autobiographical telling of the onset of multiple sclerosis and living with the consequences is at once inspiring and yet at the same time frustrating as gradually her powers of mobility are reduced. With the onset of a disease like MS the nature of friendships and work relationships have to be re-evaluated and wholesale changes must be faced in life. For fellow sufferers of MS, Sue Pepper’s story is one of courage as she adapts to her limitations and successfully takes her swimming to the level of the National Championships.
