Dave Bahr, First-Time Author of Prave: The Adventures of the Blind and the Brittle
Dave Bahr is a first-time author and owner of In-sightful Living. Dave is an accessibility expert, helping companies to better understand and successfully interact with people with disabilities. His memoir features stories of the love between him and his late wife, Priscilla – two headstrong people with very different but complementary disabilities: blindness and brittle bones. They met in an advocacy group and fireworks flashed, making them inseparable. Their stories include laughter, fear, sadness, and frustration at the treatment by those with ignorant or downright inappropriate behavior towards them. No one can walk away from this story without feeling inspired, angry and more aware.
When Kris and I first met, I thought I’d be having her ghostwrite my book, but she encouraged me to write it along side her instead. Since I was going to be using it for speaking, she felt it was important to capture my unique voice and sense of humor.Kris was beside me not just with writing the sometimes difficult memories on paper, but also there to talk me off the ledge during the highs and lows of the process, guiding me to just keep writing and being there for support and encouragement along the way. I couldn’t have done it without her, nor her partners in the post production team.
