Author, Personal Essay and Travel Essay Writer, Blogger, Coach
Writing is the connection of all that I am. It encompasses all I love, feel and experience. In reading my work, you will come to know who I am intimately and deeply.  I hold nothing back. I expose myself to you completely.

My writing is as diverse and comprehensive as my interests, passions, experiences and my life. My personal essays are deep with emotion culminating in insight and the wisdom I have gained. I write about issues such as dissociation, depression, midlife, major life changes, grief, dying, and death with deep understanding from my own experiences.

My  life experiences with dissociation and issues relating to identity and sense of self have guided me to create programs for self-discovery and letting go of your past, rediscovering your authentic self and creating a life in alignment with your true self.

Memoir front cover proofIn my New Book, Through the Woods to the Sea: A Journey of Becoming Me,  I share my story, my life, my journey of stepping out of life to create one. It is one of emotion, hope, perseverance, letting go and beginning again. I share my story in hopes that you will believe that no matter what life brings you -You will traverse though the woods and find your sea of dreams.

My Blog  series Sister’s Travel Adventures chronicles my sister and I as we cruise and travel to places we have been before and to new places in the world that we have only dreamed about. It follows us through our  memories of childhood, our relationship with our  father, and through our relationship with our mother, our experience of dealing with our mother’s Alzheimer’s and death. This experience is what has sent us leaping out into our reawakened passions of cruising and traveling. It awakened our dream of cruising around the world. expanding the dream bigger to explore any interest  or place that excites us and are passionate about.  And will become a book someday.
