Kate Allatt Book and Novel

Kate Allatt - Author


Kate Allatt, 41, is a mum of three who lives in Dore and suffered a massive brainstem stroke in Feb 2010. Kate was diagnosed with Locked-In syndrome and was told she would never walk or talk again and wired up to a life support machine for nine weeks. I suppose think of the sad story the ‘Diving Bell & Butterfly.’

At first, Kate wanted to die but then she decided to fight back and moved her thumb nine weeks after her stroke which gave her hope she would one day get back to 'normal.'

Now, she is walking talking and driving again and has proven the medical profession wrong. She is a medical and inspirational speaker and ambitious, driven woman, who has a genuine interest in anything to do with stroke recovery, neuroplasticity and positive thinking on coping with illness. She has featured in the media many times over the last 18 months. She has been interviewed on the Jeremy Vine BBC radio show and ITV's This Morning as well as the Holding Out For A Hero ITV game show.

Her new book is called 'Gonna Fly Now! locked-In laughter Unleashed' - a self-publish and sequel to her first book Running Free: Breaking Free from Locked- in syndrome, published in May 2011.

Winner Extraordinary Woman 2011 & a finalist for the Jane Tomlinson award for courage at the Yorkshire Women of Achievement awards May 2012. Now an inspirational speaker, charity campaigner... What's next?
