The life of Dr Scott Hollier is not what you’d call typical. He is well-educated, has a good job, is a husband and father, is legally blind, loves computers and gadgets, goes to church, and enjoys travel, spending time with friends and following his favourite football team. For most people, the atypical part of this description will be ‘legally blind’, but from Scott’s perspective, it’s his traitorous support of a football team outside his home state of Western Australia that makes him stand out from the crowd.

For people with disabilities, everything listed above should be typical, yet the pursuit of education, embracing the benefits of technology, and finding a good job and a partner in life can be challenging for many. While Scott can relate to that due to the degenerative eye condition that has nearly extinguished his sight, his story is not about what society should do to help him, but rather what a person with a disability can do to give back to a joyous, generous world.

Outrunning the Night is a memoir with a purpose. Its aim is to provide support to disadvantaged people – and the people supporting them. It’s not about anyone reaching the pinnacle of sporting achievement or possessing a brilliant mind. Instead, it’s a celebration of life and its possibilities. It shows that making it in this world is not about climbing Everest, but overcoming the little things to succeed in everyday life.
