Terminally-ill Shrewsbury man Noel Conway pens two books – Shropshire Star

The motor neurone disease (MND) sufferer has released Tales from the Hill, which will be followed shortly by his autobiography.

Mr Conway has dedicated the last two years campaigning for a change in the law on assisted dying – even taking his fight to the Supreme Court.

The 68-year-old wants assistance from a medical professional to end his own life when he has less than six months left to live and still has mental capacity.

However in November, the court rejected his last appeal and the case will go no further.

But Mr Conway has turned his attention to writing and has released a book inspired by The Wrekin.

He said: “I’ve always written poetry since a child and two years ago published a selection of this entitled A Life in Words. However, apart from the odd article and the ‘stop start’ engagement with a book in 2009, which I haven’t completed, I didn’t begin to seriously write prose until two years ago. The motivation for this was primarily to tell my story.”
