"Phillip Hounslow was born in 1943 and was raised in the eastern suburbs of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. Born blind, there was no school available to him until the age of ten, so Phillip spent most of his time playing with instruments, particularly drums. This turned out to be a worthwhile pastime, as he played drums professionally for more than fifty years in clubs and for radio, television, and countless recordings. During his time at school, Phillip endured six years of sexual abuse, which led to the severe tarnishing of his already limited view of the world. In 1970 Phillip was married for twenty-seven years to his darling, late Mrs. Chicken (her pet name). In 1979 he read a book called Baby Boomers by Helen Townsend, which helped inspire him to write a personal memoir of his life during these times. After finding God in 2010, Phillip became a member of the Seventh-Day Adventist Church and feels his journey through life is now serving as a testimony to the many thousands of blind people in Australia and to victims of abuse. Now retired, Phillip spends much of his time listening to audiobooks and music. Being blind, Phillip is a verbal person; however, verbal language does not read well, so it took an extensive amount of patience and editing to make this book a reality. Containing the multifaceted look into the life of a blind person, Seeing without Looking covers the issues of blindness, gender, sexual abuse, and just how resilient one person can be."
