Little People: BIG LIVES

My new book is now published. It shines the spotlight on people living with dwarfism.


Britain’s Warwick Davis, high profile actor (Life’s Too Short, Star Wars, Harry Potter and more) talked frankly to me about his life in theatre and film, his documentary on the Ovitz family, and his passion for recognizing the talents of other little people. His profile features in the book.

The other ten profiled in Little People: Big Lives are Australian and have been carefully chosen to show that not only can they live normal lives despite their physical difference, they can also achieve in sport, business and the arts. They range in age, gender and ethnicity.

Meredith Young, president of the Short Statured People of Australia, agrees with Warwick Davis that this book conveys a positive message about people living with a physical difference.

The book can be purchased from this website NOW. Go to the  BOOK SALES page enquire about it by emailing info@checkword.com.au
