Belinda Miller is a successful children’s book author who was diagnosed with facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy when she was 22 years old. Her diagnosis has not stopped her from doing the one thing she loves most: being an author. Belinda began her career as an elementary school language arts teacher, transitioning later to a career as an underwriter and legal assistant. She says that FSHD, being a slowly degenerating disease, allowed her to do a lot of living in a short amount of time.
As a gift to the Society, Belinda has generously decided to donate $1.00 from every copy sold of her newest book, “The Ragwort Chronicles, Along the Way: Roscoe’s Journey,” to fund Society projects. The books are written to fit elementary and early middle school grade levels and are of the fantasy adventure genres. “I mainly write to give children a magical place to get away to, and make friends amongst the gnomes and creatures of the worlds they travel through,” says Miller.

The FSH Society would like to sincerely thank Belinda Miller for generously donating proceeds from her new book to the FSH Society. We are fortunate to have the support of such a successful FSHD patient.
