Hello, my name is Rosemary Richings, and I'm the author of Stumbling Through Space and Time: Living Life With Dyspraxia.
Here are a few words of praise for my book:
"This is a marvel of a book, sure to open both hearts and minds. Rosemary Richings writes with such grace, compassion, and thoughtfulness. I was deeply moved by her story and her sense of solidarity with others who have been harmed by the status quo. She is unafraid to name the policies and ways of thinking that marginalize and exploit, nor to boldly imagine a better world. This book needs to be read widely."
-Audrey Clare Farley, author of The Unfit Heiress
"Stumbling through space and time is a heartfelt memoir, offering an authentic insight into what it means to be dyspraxic. Rosemary not only creates a space where those with dyspraxia can feel seen, but she also creates valuable learning opportunities for anyone to learn about it. This will help to make the world a more inclusive place for everyone."
-Emily Katy, autistic blogger, writer and Trustee of Autistic Girls Network
"This is a raw and honest look at what life is like when the world isn't built for you. As a dyspraxic adult, I still struggle to explain myself but I found new resources in this book. Rosemary has encapsulated so many of my feelings of not belonging in the neurotypical world and reminded me it's okay to do things my way."
-Rachel Charlton-Dailey, Founder and Editor-in-Chief, The Unwritten
As someone who is a neurodivergent dyspraxic, I bring a mixture of digital marketing, writing, and editing professional experience, lived experience, and strong global connections to the global neurodiversity advocacy community to everything I do. I am a freelance writer and editor that has worked with a wide variety of clients: from E-bay and Yellowpages to Uptimize, BeFunky, Saatva Mattress Company, and a long list of other organisations.
I started out in the not-for-profit sector, and then transitioned to the commercial copywriting space. After doing both those things, I soon learned that my real love and talent was writing and editing content designed to accommodate and raise awareness of key priorities for disabled people. You can learn more about the work that I do by checking out my website.
Currently, I am serving on the board of trustees of Dyspraxic Me, a UK-based charity providing peer support for dyspraxics ages 16-25. I am also a founding member of Dyspraxic Alliance, along with a Dyspraxia Magazine Panel member.
