Amy's Life!Click here to get my latest book, Amy’s (relentless, Active, Nutty, Persistent, Outrageous, Roller Coaster) Life!

Nearly a year and a half ago, I had to get a job. I was on my third year of hunting for one and getting nowhere. Mustering all the confidence I could after countless rejections, I made an appointment with Orange County’s SCORE program. They help individuals start small businesses and their priceless guidance doesn’t cost a dime. Anyone can go.

If they would have told me by this point in time, I’d have two books published and developed my own self improvement courses that includes live webinars, I would have raised an eyebrow. I had zero idea how any of that worked.

Well, here I am, and having experienced the biggest learning curve of my life, I now have two books published and have  developed two of my own self improvement courses that includes me teaching live webinars. Even more exciting is the creation of the networking web site, AbleSocialNetwork.com. This is a special place with folks with disabilities (and their friends and family) can share their daily lives and thrive within the community.

Creating the website, WhatsYourWheelchair.com was my first step. It was a vehicle where people could get to know me by reading articles I wrote, and social media makes it easy to put your work out there.  Soon I had enough experience to write my first book, a few months later I created my course and last week, my second book was published.

FoWhat's Your Wheelchair Bookr six months, I had been working on a business project.  As most people, I need to make  money.  Living with a disability is expensive! The initial phase of my project was writing a book.  It is now finished.

I am extremely happy and very proud.  I self published it, and Amazon has accepted it as  part of its inventory.  It it is now available for purchase!

The book is a collection of articles I have written. You may recognize  a few from WhatsYourWheelchair.com, but dozens of articles have not been posted and never will be.

This is my second time writing a book. The first  was about eight years ago.  I wrote a memoir, and it took a year for me to complete.  I had been in the hospital for five months prior, so my goal was to take a year to get strong again and complete a book.

I wrote my memoir for multiple reasons.  First, I loved writing and felt I had a life story that needed to be told. Through my tragedies and triumphs, I could possibly inspire and offer hope to other individuals dealing with challenging life circumstances.

Second, I needed an income. Unfortunately, my memoir did not get published, regardless of my relentless visits to literary agents.  It did, however, lead to a great job offer from EParent Magazine.  I enjoyed writing with them for about six months, until the magazine was dissolved.

My desire to write a book about my life experiences never left me… The rejection I received from the New York agents only made me want to succeed more.

Since writing my first book, technology has made things in the publishing world open to everyone.  If you are willing to work hard, you can write a book and publish it for pennies, literally.

I also have matured over the last eight years as a person and as a writer.  I recently reread my memoir and was surprised how much of it I would change… Or rather edit may be better word.

Over the last few months, I have worked very hard with the organization SCORE.  SCORE is a division of the SBA (Small Business Administration),  and exists to help people get started with their own small businesses.

SCORE is made up of business professionals who donate their time.  Their advice, encouragement and guidance is priceless and actually free.   The harder you are willing to work, the harder they work with you.

The title of my book is, “What’s Your Wheelchair?”  It’s full of stories from my life’s crazzzy journey.  Some will make you laugh and some will make you cry.  I pray with my whole heart all of them inspire you.
