Amy L. Bovaird is a vision-impaired Christian author and speaker. When she was 28, doctors diagnosed her with Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP)-a degenerative eye-disease that eventually causes blindness. Later, she learned she had Usher’s Syndrome, which causes deafness.
Having taught in Latin America, South East Asia, and the Middle East, Amy often features glimpses of these and other cultures in her writing. Although Amy suffers from a dual disability, she continues to enjoy running, hiking and traveling. She also volunteers with local and national animal rescue organizations. She is an award-winning writer and a ‘Medal of Honor in Literature’ recipient from Ohio Valley University in 2016, with three published titles to her credit.
Amy dips into humor and optimism as she blogs about the challenges she faces as she loses more vision. But more importantly, Amy shares the lessons God reveals to her through her difficulties. Today, the author resides in Northwest, Pennsylvania. Every day she negotiates for the upper hand with her kitten, Sophie Socks, and, on most occasions, fails!
