About the Author

James is a New Zealander. He was a teacher, musician and music director, a journalist and event manager - as well as a husband, father and grandfather. He was a voracious reader, a fluent writer and a confident speaker. In 2015, he suffered a hemiparesis, a middle cerebral artery territory infarct. In a word, a stroke. He collapsed, paralysed on his right side, and couldn't speak or write. The hospital intervention was rapid. They administered a clot-busting injection. His limbs were free but his speech was ... absent. He had/has aphasia.Aphasia is the loss of a previously held ability to articulate ideas or comprehend spoken or written language, resulting from damage to the brain caused by injury or disease - in this case, a stroke. With expert therapists in speech, music and eurhythmy he has re-invented himself. He has a positive and optimistic outlook, electing to view his stroke as a 'stroke of luck'. But his speech is still...suspect.
Warren Bluhm was raised in New Jersey but fell in love at first sight with the blue skies of Wisconsin, where he has spent his entire adulthood, first in radio news, then as a reporter/editor of community newspapers, more recently incorporating creative writing and book publishing into that mix.
