Upcoming Interview In New Mobility Magazine

New Mobility Magazine recently interviewed me for their February, 2008, issue. In the interview, I speak about my new role as Ms. Wheelchair America, as well as my platform for the upcoming year: Physical Fitness for People with Disabilities.

I also speak about my writing, specifically the Romance Novel Line I have been writing called, "The Special Needs Series," which features women with disabilities as heroines.

New Mobility was launched in 1989 to bring quality journalism to an underserved readership. Founder Sam Maddox recognized a community of wheelchair users who wanted more information on how to lead active, healthy lives and were willing to speak openly about everything from so-called "walking programs" to sexuality. He tapped seasoned writers with disabilities and college interns alike to produce a unique resource that shattered stereotypes and told real stories of living life on wheels.

New Mobility encourages the integration of active-lifestyle wheelchair users into mainstream society, while simultaneously reflecting the vibrant world of disability-related arts, media, advocacy and philosophy. Our stories foster a sense of community and empower readers to:
  • - participate in all areas of life, including education, work, love, sex, home ownership, parenting, sports, recreation, travel and entertainment
  • - be informed of and take charge of health concerns
  • - obtain appropriate technology
  • - assert legal rights
