About the Author


We each have multiple pivotal life experiences. One such experience of mine was one night along a young mountain road when the world seemed to disappear. Being the only road home, I slowed forward into a pea-soup fog. The children became hyper-silent. What if - thoughts, all vied for my gut's attention as it battled to stay on the road beneath the tires.

The chill of the night woke me where I had passed out on my bed. Nothing had prepared me for that experience. it was not a dream/nightmare. We made it home.

To know that "words don't teach" is to know their full power. To know the power that "words don't teach" is to have experienced both the profound freedom and extreme constraints of communication. 

The writing and publishing of Nurturing Your Writing Calm is the opening of a door for me. It is my desire to invite others to explore their stories and so find the questions and solutions that await them.

I was born in Toronto, Canada and now live in Southern California.
