I am a writer, student of the Universe, wife of several decades and mother of two still-forming young men. By education and degree I am a journalist and maestro of English Literature. I believe in the magic of stories–written, spoken and lived. I have worked professionally as a newspaper reporter and editor on small local publications, book reviewer on a major daily in Texas, as a bookstore employee and as a bus tour guide in Switzerland, among other things. I am an amateur astrologer and have enjoyed the study of all things “meta” since 1988. I have lived most of my life in Colorado but have also resided overseas and in Illinois, Georgia, Virginia, Texas and Oklahoma. By Nature I am an academic and psychic detective, a truth teller, a shaman, and all-around misfit. I am currently apprenticing in shamanism under two renowned practitioners.
