Welcome to my website!

I´m Marja Korhonen from Saarijärvi ( in the Central Finland). I used to be a teacher for special education. I got a stroke in 2004 and as a result of a serious case of malpractice was a locked-in syndrome – in other words quadriplegia and loss of speech. I got back home from the hospital in 2006 . Quite soon I started to arrange different kinds of charity events. I gave my face for publicity when my first book “Häivähdyksiä – erityinen elämäni” (Myllylahti 2014) was published in Finland. Now it is translated in English and I am looking forward to find a foreign book agent. My book has been written by head mouse- all by myself. As a result of the publicity I was asked to give lectures all around Finland. So I became an entrepreneur in 2015. My second self-written book “Sydämeen tatuoitu” (Myllylahti 2017) continued to increase the popularity of my lectures. My third book is in progress.
