Terry M. Chase, "Spoke by Spoke: How a Broken Back and a Broken Back Led to a WholeHearted Life" (Push on Press, 2021)


In this episode of Queer Voices I talk to Dr. Terry Chase about her book Spoke by Spoke: How a Broken Back and a Broken Bike Led to a WholeHearted Life, released in November 2021 by Push On Press.

Spoke by Spoke takes the reader on one woman’s journey to reinvent herself following a hit and run accident which left her back broken, and her bike crumpled by a speeding motor vehicle. The stories Terry shares will take you from the depths of despair and edges of darkness to bringing you up with her amazing spirit of perseverance and resilience. This book is not a how-to manual for facing the challenges of life but rather an inspirational guide for living a whole-hearted life no matter what hand someone is dealt.
