Health knowledge made personal

Gary Presley

I'm a writer, mostly essays on a variety of subjects, but often on the place of people with disabilities in society. My own journey as a person with a disability is chronicled in a memoir, Seven Wheelchairs: A Life beyond Polio, which was published Fall 2008 by The University of Iowa Press.

Hi Gary, I came across your site and was very interested in what you said. I just launched Fishbowl Cards last year and very much appreciate any and all feedback. As someone with over 30 years of experience in the social expressions industry my goal for Fishbowl Cards is to fill a niche that until now has been completely ignored. If you have any thoughts or ideas for cards I would truly love to hear them. I look forward to hearing from you. Sincerely, Tina Finn, President Fishbowl Cards
