I’m the President of WyoPoets. I’m visually impaired and live in Sheridan, Wyoming, where for six years, I cared for my late husband, totally blind and partially paralyzed as a result of two strokes.
Besides poetry, I write fiction and nonfiction. My novel, We Shall Overcome, was published in 2007 by iUniverse. My work has appeared in various journals and anthologies. My poetry collection, How to Build a Better Mousetrap: Recollections and Reflections of a Family Caregiver, was released in 2011 also by iUniverse. I’m currently working on a memoir about my experiences as a family caregiver.
I’m inspired to write by many things: songs I hear on the radio, things I see with my limited vision while out walking, conversations I overhear, dreams I have, items in the news.
