About the Author:

Please note that Diedricha will donate 10% of the profits to help children with a disability.

Diedricha was born in Holland in 1933. Survived World War II which however, due to malnutrition, was the original cause of her disabilities. She and her husband came to Canada in 1957 and became Canadian in 1962. She worked in various offices mostly related to general insurance. During that time various spinal surgeries were performed which made her well enough to continue to work after the healing process.

She became a Mom in 1972 and rather than going back to a job she studied interior design, architectural drafting and perspective rendering. Working from home allowed her to be with her daughter rather than have her go to day care. She officially started her business Deekor Design and became very successful. She mainly worked with developers of big town house and apartment projects. She was in charge of colour co-ordination and display suites. Became later more involved into Architectural Rendering and together with her former drafting teacher was ready to expand more into that area. Many opportunities arose and the future looked promising.

It was in 1984 that she was hospitalized and underwent major spinal fusions with Harrington rods inserted. Two additional surgeries had to be performed related to the surgeon's sloppiness. In the end she was no longer able to continue with her business.

After a lengthy medical malpractice experience she and her daughter ended up in a small apartment and on Welfare. Diedricha started a correspondence course through Open Learning University focusing on Psychology. Because of eventually obtaining a wheel chair she was able to attend University of Victoria. She became involved very much with issues related to students with a disability and was part of major positive changes. As president for several years of the Society for Students with a Disability (SSD) she was able to together with other students and some professors to instigate Disability Awareness Day (DAD) creating more awareness on campus. She graduated at age 64 and became a counselor focusing on people with disability issues. Even though many students could not afford a counselor, she would help them anyway. Just to be able to help was enough pay.

Years later she started to write and this is her first book. The hope is that if other people learn about "trust" then it will all have been worth it.

Having been involved with students with disabilities it is her sincere desire to donate 10% of the profits to help children with disabilities.
