About Me

My name is Debbie Johnson. I live in Nevada, Iowa with a very spoiled beagle named Zoey. I have had Major Depressive Disorder for many years. In 2004, I was disabled in car accident, resulting in a left above the knee amputation and requiring the use of a wheelchair for mobility.


I have  published, "The Disability Experience," a collection of poetry and short non-fiction pieces dealing with life as a disabled person, and, "The Disability Experience II". My three goals for these books are:

1) To let others with disabilities know they are not alone.

2) To give the non-disabled a chance to see into our world.

3) To show the therapeutic value of writing in dealing with illness.


I have always enjoyed writing, but started writing in earnest four years ago after taking a therapeutic writing course. Writing has become a way of life for me. I feel an overwhelming desire to put thoughts into words and words on a page. As a way of advocating for the disabled, poor, homeless, aging and chronically ill, I want to share these works with others.
