Ricky Monahan Brown

Ricky Monahan Brown suffered a massive haemorrhagic stroke in 2012. Doctors gave him a one-in-twenty chance of a good outcome, where a 'good outcome' would be surviving in a non-vegetative, non-plegic state. During recovery, Ricky realised he had stories to tell. His writing has subsequently been published in books, magazines, journals and newspapers - his stroke recovery memoir will be published in January 2019.

Ricky received a Stroke Association Life After Stroke Award for Creative Arts in 2016, and his night of live literature and music – Interrobang‽ – won the 2017 Saboteur Award for Best Spoken Word Night in Britain. He lives in Edinburgh with his wife and their son.
