After a career as an American actress in England in the 70s, I gave it up and returned to New York to hopefully write about my time in London. Little did I know I would have to wait decades before I would be able to put that and other things into words. So I became a painter instead, and was able to express it all in mute symbols of color and form. Well, not quite all. In preparation for my second attempt at writing, I went back to college and then on to grad school to learn my craft. At the moment I am still in the process of making final revisions to my memoir, The Nancy Who Drew, as more memory, deeper memory, continues to seep in. And because my journey as a writer has been such a long and difficult one and full of learning, I enjoy promoting other writers on my blog talk radio show, Artists and Ascension. First as an actress, I spoke the words of others. Then as a painter, I drew wordless images that spoke volumes. And now as a writer, at last I have been able to give voice to my deepest inner self, and bring to the surface, bring to conscious awareness and understanding, the story that has haunted me for most of my life. I know what it takes to delve. I know what it takes to be transparent. I know all the obstacles. I know muddled thinking. And now, at last, I know clarity as well.
When I'm not writing or painting I love to read! And to keep my hands going when I need to mull things over, I like to sew or knit or crochet. And then of course there is cooking... pies and cakes, muffins and cookies, and now and then a main course.
