Juanita Brown Tobin lives in Blowing Rock, North Carolina. Irene Cosmo, editor of Pangloss Papers, says, Tobin is "a square-rigged sailing ship that goes right into the wind. Honest as a two-by-four over the head, she has worked at Dorothea Dix mental hospital, which left her with few illusions. That does not mean she is without beliefs. In herself, her writing, in God, and in someone called Simon with a love that passes all understanding." Tobin writes a weekly column for The Blowing Rocket, Blowing Rock's newspaper.
Tobin graduated from the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing in 1944.
Tobin started her career as a general duty nurse at Moses Cone Hospital in Greensboro in 1951. Three years later she went to Keeley Institute and in 1959, she became a head nurse at Dorothea Dix Hospital in Raleigh. She held that position till 1969.
Tobin began writing poetry in 1963. She also authored a column "Extended Adventure" for the Blowing Rocket Magazine since 1989 until she lost her sight in 2005.
