Crum, WV, December 09, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- West Virginia's Larry Muncy, a C5 quadriplegic, has gained the interest of several readers, and media outlets, after self-publishing his first book of poetry on Lulu.com, the online marketplace for digital content.
Mr. Muncy wrote his book to prove that the physically challenged have wonderful things to offer society. His book "Simple Thoughts" is a collection of 30 poems covering several genres of poetry relatable to those with, and without, physical and mental disabilities.
Mr. Muncy was paralyzed in an automobile accident in 1991, and he is proud most of his major accomplishments in life have come after his being paralyzed. Since publishing his book, Mr. Muncy has had several articles written about him on such websites as: Appalachian Folk, Soulful Encounters, and Healing Through Creativity.
Mr. Muncy's book "Simple Thoughts" is also fighting domestic violence. A friend, Vadie Michelle Maynard, was allegedly killed by her husband Roger Stroud only a few months ago. Now, $.10 from every copy sold is being donated to a charity fighting against domestic violence.
Mr. Muncy says, "Failure is an excuse used by those who choose not to succeed." He goes on to say he chooses to succeed and believes his book will help people suffering from disabilities as well as people trapped in abusive relationships.
