Kirby Nielsen writes historical fiction, short stories, and essays. His primary interest is America’s treatment of disabled people during the period 1900-1970. A large part of his research and writing is dedicated to the pseudo-scientific movement known as Eugenics. His Masters Degree in Applied Behavior Analysis and extensive experience with severely disabled people provide much of the background material for his writing. He has written two unpublished novels and is seeking a publisher for his first novel Isolated in America. Girl on The Edge is currently being edited. The books follow the life of a single heroine who is orphaned at age 16 and sent to live in a large mental institution. Both document the terrible treatment America imposed on people who had any form of physical and/or intellectual handicaps. Mr. Nielsen and his wife live in Delaware, Ohio.
