Jenny Sheldon

A former English teacher, Jenny Sheldon was left unable to speak after suffering a stroke. But Jenny never lost her understanding of words and determined to regain her life, she used singing, swimming and her love of life to find her way back.

Her account of her recovery, I Will: A Memoir of Stroke, Renewal and the Power of Song is her triumph – and a compelling example to others. Co-authored with writer, Sharon Dean, the narrative explores a decade of stages of recovery with humour and passsion.

Inspired by her favourite authors, Jane Austen, Charles Dickens and Lucy Maude Montgomery.
