Author, editor, writing coach, workshop leader, and academic mentor and nag, I have published over 600 stories, essays, writing craft articles, spiritual pieces, and occasional poems in literary and academic print and online venues. Eons ago, I published a children’s book of original dinosaur riddles (HarperCollins), in print for 18 years. More recently, my handbook to assist doctoral candidates is based on my professional academic practice (PhD, Columbia University): Challenges in Writing Your Dissertation: Coping with the Emotional, Interpersonal, and Psychological Struggles (Rowman & Littlefield Education, 2015). In my spiritual self-help book, Trust Your Life: Forgive Yourself and Go After Your Dreams (Unity Books, 2011), I draw examples from my academic consulting and other aspects of life to support readers in reaching their lifelong yearnings. Continuing with my own, I am draft-deep in my third novel, with more clogging my files. Website: Trust Your Life Now.
