SummaryJoin us to hear local writer James Osborne discuss his nine-year journey to walk again after a tragic spinal cord injury that rendered him quadriplegic.
DescriptionJames H. Osborne suffered a tragic spinal cord injury from a road cycling accident that rendered him quadriplegic. Though doctors said he would likely never walk again, James has been fighting for nine years to recover his body. His memoir, "Will Your Way Back," chronicles his journey, an exercise of will, to walk again and live independently. James has struggled professionally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually to overcome his disability and persevere in pursuit of a new normal.

Osborne received his B.S. degree in Healthcare Administration from Ithaca College in Ithaca, NY. Osborne met his wife of 36 years a year after finishing college, married in 1980 and moved from NYC to Seattle in the spring of 1981. Osborne built a successful career in IT management working in Healthcare, Real Estate Investment & Property Management, Internet startup, retail and currently higher education.
