Welcome to my corner of the world. For years, I’ve been blogging on the samobile network, a specialized Web venue for the blind and visually impaired. After seeing other blogs here, I decided to try blogspot in the hope that it will give me more blogging options and a wider audience. As you’ve probably guessed by now, I’m visually impaired. I can see people and things if they’re close enough, and I can detect colors. I use a white cane when walking around town, and my computer has screen reading software that allows me to type and navigate independently. I also use a desktop magnifier at home and a portable unit when I’m out and about.

I live in Sheridan, Wyoming, and for the past few years, I’ve been writing full time. My husband Bill, who I married in September of 2005, is partially paralyzed as a result of two strokes he suffered after we were married. When I’m not writing or caring for my better half, I facilitate a support group for the visually impaired, sing in a women’s barber-shop choir, and participate in water exercise classes at the YMCA.

My novel, We Shall Overcome, was published in July of 2007 by iUniverse. My short stories have appeared in Emerging Voices and Disability Studies Quarterly. My poems have appeared in Distant Horizons, Wyoming Fence Lines, and Voicings from the High Country. My creative nonfiction pieces have appeared in SageScript, and Christmas in the Country. I hope to eventually publish a book of poems and perhaps a collection of memoirs and a book of short stories.

Please visit my Web site at to learn more about me and sample my work. You will also find an excerpt and review of We Shall Overcome and links to several on line retailers where the book can be purchased in print and ebook formats. If you are, like me, visually impaired or have difficulty reading books for other reasons, there are two accessible ways you can access We Shall Overcome. If you use talking books, your local library should be able to access it on cassette from the Utah State Library. If you prefer an electronic format that can be transfered to a Victor reader or other such device, you can mail me a check for $6.00, and I’ll e-mail you the book in doc, rtf, or txt format. On My Web site, you will also find a link to e-mail me, and a link to my personal page which contains my samobile Web site and links to my blog, bookmarks, and news interests on the network. If I decide I like blogspot better than the samobile blogging option, I may eliminate that link. Thank you for visiting my corner of the world.
