About the author

Ann Chiappetta

Ann is an artist and often refers to her love of words as a natural compensation after losing her vision in 1993. Once a designer of acrylic displays and furniture, Ann trained her creative senses to flow over from the visual to the literary arts. Years later, she has become a poet and author, honing her talent in various mediums, including web content for nonprofits, regular bylines for online literary publications, poetry, anthologies and guest editing in online literary journals, just to name a few projects of which she has contributed.

The author of five independently published books, Ann possesses a Master of Science in Marriage and family therapy from Iona College and an undergraduate degree from the College of New Rochelle, both located in Westchester County, New York. A consultant and guest presenter, Ann visits schools promoting awareness and equality for people with disabilities. She is the 2015 recipient of the WDOM Spirit of Independence award and the 2019 recipient of the GDUI Leiberg-Metz award for writing.

    Writing is part of who I am. Being creative keeps me grounded. I’ve been a reader of visualization, as the words flow, the scenes play in my head. Words aren’t only symbols typed on a computer or written on paper, for me words are so much more.

  3. Hi Patty, thanks for sharing this stop on the tour. The interview sounds very interesting. Thanks for sharing the link.

    1. Hi, Robbie. I’m always glad to share.
      I think Ann’s book launch will be amazing.
      I decided since some organizations like and others do not like having Zoom info shared I’d simply direct you to the info which is on Annie’s blog concerning that since she’s a member of BOE and I’m not and let people retrieve the Zoom info from there.
      I cannot wait to enjoy the rest of the tour.
      Have a super day.

      1. That was a clever way of handling it, Patty.
