This is who I am, and why I write.

About me and my crew
I’m a 49-year-old single mother with a beautiful daughter, of whom I am very proud.
Two boys, and Three girls.
I own and handle a Black Labrador from The Seeing Eyeâ¢ named Campbell Leeâa.k.a. Bubba Lee or King Campbell, to give just a couple of his nicknames.
I am a one-time published author, the creator of an Online Magazine, Blogger, and Nonprofit Consultant.
When and where I was born
I was born on November 9, 1967 in Kingsport, Tenn., where I also grew up.
About my blindness
I was born one and a half months premature. My blindness was caused by my being given too much oxygen in the incubator. I was partially sighted until 1991, at which time I lost my sight due to an infection after cataract surgery and high eye pressure. I used a cane for 31 years before making the change to a guide dog.
The story of which can be found in my book, Campbells Rambles: How a Seeing Eye Dog Retrieved My Life.
Where I live, and work
Currently, I live and work in Kingsport, Tenn.
I used to work for CONTACT-CONCERN of Northeast Tennessee, Inc. I left that position to spend time with family and pursue my writing full time.
Now, as a Free-Lance Writer, and Creator of an Online Magazine, I have a mission.
I wish to share my experiences as a Multiply disabled person who happens to have blindness as one of her major factors, in the hopes of raising awareness about the challenges someone with multiple disAbilities faces each day.
