After losing vision, author finds fuel for life

By J.B. Lawrence, Special to the BDN

D. P. Lyons is a writer whose childhood passions have made themselves a home within. Not until the summer of 2010 had he ever learned how to touch type, but he did manage to gain the skills of typing, and his writings exploded onto the screen. In those early summer days of 2010, Lyons suffered vision loss due to complications from a battle in which he waged with infancy retinal cancer in 1960, and was re-introduced to another passion of his, the computer. With an amazing array of modern technology making it possible for the visually impaired to gain access to the digital world, he took his place at the seat in front of his personal pc, and dove, home keys first, into his life long passion for writing. He started working on Sully Street in the fall of 2011, not knowing where the story would take him. Sully Street became a fuel for life and a raging passion that would help define the meaning of its journey back through time.
