Hi, my name is Gavin Clifton TheDisabledWriter!

TheDisabledWriter Community member Posts: 1 Listener


The Author of the children's books Max And The Magic Wish and Paddy The Polar Bear Teddy, Gavin Clifton, was born with cerebral palsy, and it has always been a lifelong dream of his to become a published Children's Author. Gavin is passionate about showing others with all kinds of disabilities, whether their disabilities are physical or hidden, that if they set their mind to it and if they trust in their unique abilities, there's nothing they can't achieve. His philosophy is 'Always be yourself; then your true colours will always shine through.'


Gavin really wanted to make a difference and write his story about disability and acceptance just the same as any other children's book is written, and in a way that kids can relate to and learn, whilst their senses and imagination go to wherever they need to go, but always keeping the true underlying educational message that it is 'O.K' and acceptable to be different, and never to judge someone until you truly get to know them.
