About Me

Image contains: me, smiling.I live in Sheridan, Wyoming, where for six years, I cared for my late husband Bill, totally blind, who was partially paralyzed by two strokes soon after we were married. Before that, I was a registered music therapist and worked for fifteen years in a nursing home and other facilities that served senior citizens. I have a visual impairment, and during this time, I facilitated a support group for others like me. I also taught braille and served on the advisory board of a trust fund that allows persons with blindness or low vision to purchase adaptive equipment and services.

I’m the author of two novels, two poetry collections, and a memoir with another novel on the way. My poems, short stories, and essays have been published in various journals and anthologies. I belong to several writers’ organizations and a women’s singing group and take water exercise classes at the YMCA. Please visit my website to learn more about me and my work. Thank you for visiting.

  1. As someone who is also visually impaired, I would be interested to know how effective the Americans with Disabilities Act is in your view? In the United Kingdom the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) was incorporated into the Equalaties Act so there is no (separate) disability discrimination legislation in the UK.

    In the UK the Equalities Act helps. There is, however still discrimination with employment opportunities for people with disabilities being less good than for non-disabled individuals.

    Best – Kevin

  2. Abby, this site address was not one of the addresses you gave me in your email. As you can see, this has an https address, not an http address. If I offended you I apologize. That was never my intent. Thanks for your interest. ❤
