I have lived on two continents and traveled further, but these days my writer window looks out on New York, where I watch the woods change with the seasons as I work. I am a biographer and poet, and more informally a blogger. I read more nonfiction than fiction and write to answer questions - my own and my readers.' In The Story of Baha'u'llah: Promised One of All Religions I used the techniques of fiction to tell a true story, which makes it part of the compelling, relatively new genre of creative nonfiction. I am currently writing a second biography that historically follows the first. Each is about a central founding figure of the Baha'i Faith.
I enjoy learning how arts, science, and the Baha'i Faith converge in the dynamics of creativity, a paradigm which I write about -- along with other topics of interest -- in my blog Luminous Realities: Exploring the Creative Process at http://luminousrealities.blogspot.com/.
I love the language of poetry and that we are learning the languages of animals. I am intrigued with the science of minds, that brains change with experience, the human race evolves, and that true religion opens imagination, mind, and heart to new, undreamed-of possiblities.
I have a BA in English Literature, an M.A. concentration in Teaching English as a Second Language, and training as a writing workshop leader in the Amherst Writers & Artists method developed by Pat Schneider. My poetry has appeared in World Order Magazine, Orison, and other publications.
