Writer, author, nature enthusiast, peace promoter and energy worker with a focus on harnessing the power of words, love, joy, non-digital human connection and nature to restore optimum health. My passion lies in assisting others through writing to recognize their strengths, attributes and dreams and to offer the hope and encouragement necessary to achieve them. My mission is to eradicate the Western cultural consensus concept of mental illness.
I divide most of my time between the beautiful settings and people of western New York and the Gulf Coast of Florida. My books, Giddy as Charged and Reconciliation of the Heart are available on Amazon.
My current project, I Beg Your Pardon, but I’m not the Least Bit Disordered, is a combination of history and light-hearted personal experience of what it means (or doesn’t) to be labeled mentally ill in the United States.
Quote that I live by: “I wish I could show you when you are lonely or in darkness the astonishing light of your own being.” – Hafez of Shiraz
