After Pat Simpson and his wheelchair-dependent wife Anne traveled the world, Pat launched his writing career with two highly acclaimed nonfiction books for physically disabled travelers: Wheelchair Around the World and Wheelchair Down Under. His third book, Whither thou Goest, won the 2004 “Nonfiction Book of the Year Award” from Jada Press. After years of travel and research, much of it with Anne, Pat came out with his first historical novel, Desert Angels. Along the way he met some of the most unforgettable people of his life while visiting libraries, museums, Indian reservations and battle sites all over the American West. He followed Indian warpaths and pioneer trails, including the entire Oregon Trail—twice! Desert Angels came out in 2012 and is now available in print and e-book formats on Amazon.com, Barnesandnoble.com and Smashwords.com.
