Presently writing a new book of fiction, enjoying the wonderful feedback and praise for the novel Buddha's Wife and bringing together a group of creatives for a contemporary film adaptation of that story.
I've written for numerous magazines, newspapers and journals throughout North America, Europe, Africa and Asia; has 13 books published in the U.S. Am continuing to discover great stories, provide editing and consultation services and write fiction and non-fiction. My latest work of non-fiction is Don't Just Sit There, Do Something! Grief's Wake Up Call.
I've worked as a trauma counselor in a variety of situations and environments, most notably with local and international non-profit organizations such as hospice, the coroner's office, hospitals, state prisons, the ROP Center for Street Children and the Ihangane Project (both in Rwanda).
My classes and books on grief, loss, hope and transformation, can be found at The Figley Institute and Quantum Continuing Education Online.
Some of my favorite writers include Deena Metzger, Isabel Allende, Wallace Stegner, Toni Morrison, Bell Hooks, Zora Neale Hurston, Dave Eggers, Ann Petry, Carlos Ruiz Zafon, Alice Walker and James Bladwin.
Novel in progress. Film adaptation of Buddha's Wife in process. Continue reviewing books at The New York Journal of Books.
