Patrick and Anne Simpson had a not so uncommon dream to travel the world upon their retirement. A major obstacle had to be crossed before this dream could become a reality. Anne, debilitated by a rare joint disease, would be confined to a wheelchair for much of their eight-month journey. Wheelchair Around the World is their heartwarming and inspiring account of a couple living out their dream.

About the Author

I've written three nonfiction books: Wheelchair Around the World (1997), Wheelchair Down Under (1999) and Whither thou Goest (2001). Ten years in the making, Desert Angels (2011) is my first fiction book, an epic historical novel based on the American West's Bannock Indian War of 1878. I've written travel articles for local publications and was editor and publisher of the Raleigh North Gideons International newsletter for fourteen years. I retired from IBM in 1993 as an advisory information developer after having helped develop several IBM software user publications. At the start of my career, I received scholarships to Hartwick College in Oneonta, New York, where I majored in English.
