About The Book

In this explosive, 56-page book begins a story of power, resistance and friendship in dark times: King Edward is on the throne of a British Empire collapsing under its own weight, and those who hold power are determined it will not be shared.

It is a dangerous time for a cooper’s daughter and her mother to be displaying a queer strength beyond the usual limitations of mankind.

Emily Downings is young, Deaf and angry, with questions that need answers. To get them, she must deal with those who would deny her choices and chances. Hearing people.

When asked about the inspiration behind Deeds Not Words, Howard had this to say:

“Too often, superheroes are already super powerful through wealth or privilege. I’d much rather bring that power to places where it makes a difference.

“As a sign language user, it feels natural to want to give that power to someone Deaf. Not to ‘overcome’ her deafness; she is proud, Deaf and a force for change.”

Deeds Not Words has been created with funding from Arts Council England and Kickstarter.
