Christopher Cookson’s book “Dramas of My Theatre -- An Autobiography” reveals inspiring stories of overcoming Muscular Dystrophy and finding a passionate spirit through writing and painting.

Author/poet/painter/philosopher Christopher Cookson grew up in Colorado Springs, Colorado and fought a long journey of fighting two cruel monsters -- Muscular Dystrophy. For over three decades, Cookson battled constant suffering and no doubt has a hand full of stories to tell. His new published work “Dramas of My Theatre (An Autobiography)” tells the story of a courageous man overcoming his painful trials with remarkable strength and considerable wit and humor. In the mid-1980s, Cookson discovered poetry, philosophy, and painting as a key to release his soul from the iron cage of agony. Cookson’s experience that faith in Life conquers all is what makes this a timeless and an unforgettable book.

“It is absolute hell to lose your health and become a slave for over three decades like I had to endure and continue to fight to this day. It was important for me to find a way for others to hear my voice in hope to help speed up the process of finding the cure to set me (and everybody else who suffers from these monsters) free. I may not be able to get dressed or bathe myself, but I can use myself as an example through writing this book that shows how vital time is and what human beings should never have to face. It was also important for me to teach others about Muscular Dystrophy so they can understand what we bad crips go through on a daily basis. I gave this book all I had to inspire, teach, uplift, jest, and give all my readers my wisdom and some sunshine,” says the author.

In 2004 Cookson formed Cookson Publishing and self-published a vast collection of short stories, poetry, proverbs, and parables. Cookson recently retired from painting beautiful pictures due from being too weak to do the physical work, but he continues to fight his monsters, writes daily, and plans to publish more inspirational books near the end of 2006.
