Linda A. Cronin’s first book of poems, Dream Bones, is now available from WordTech Editions. She is a member of the Breath & Shadow, an online literary journal, editorial staff in poetry. Diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at an early age, Cronin first turned to reading as a way to transcend physical limitations. Through poetry writing, she found a way to express her voice and to describe life with a chronic, disabling disease. She has gone on to explore a number of areas in her work as a poet and often tries to be a voice for the unheard. Cronin has been active in the field of disability poetry and took part in a dialogue on women with disabilities and poetry in June 2009 that was published in Wordgathering. Linda Cronin's articles on disability and health and wellness have appeared in such magazines as Action and NJ Able as well as a number of newsletters.
