I have a visual impairment and 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 also facilitated a support group for the visually impaired, taught braille, and served on the advisory board of a trust fund that allows persons with visual impairments to purchase adaptive equipment and services.
I’m the author of a romance novel, two poetry collections, and a memoir and am working on another novel. 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 participate in water exercise classes at the YMCA. Please visit my website at http://www.abbiejohnsontaylor.com.
