Donation page set up for Melbourne writer

A DONATION page has been set up for Melbourne writer and former Horror Writers Association president Rocky Wood.

The online donation page is designed to help Wood raise up to $20,000 for the purchase of an eye-gaze device following his diagnosis of a motor neurone disease earlier this year.

The machine will allow him to communicate through eye movements recorded on a computer screen during once he loses the ability to speak.

The machine will be donated to the Motor Neurone Disease Association of Victoria after his death.

Wood is the author of five non-fiction books on the works of Stephen King and a contributor to the Glenn Chadbourne illustrated graphic novel Horrors! Great Stories of Fear and their Creators.

The donation page can be accessed at the Australian Horror Writers Association site.
