About me

Occupation Writer
Location Oregon, United States
Introduction I'm a writer and observer of beauty in nature and people, a singer of praise and a dreamer who stares into both light and darkness hoping to see someday the Face of God. My journey has led from the northern lakes, to a convent on the prairie, to lifelong education including a doctorate in ministry, to a vocation of midwifery of souls, to this place, Casa Chiara, where the light shines and John Sack and I join our lives, care for nature, pray and contemplate, study and write. Published Works: THE ROOT OF BEAUTY: A SPIRITUAL MEMOIR, THE EDGE OF TENDERNESS: A MEMOIR, THE BLUE SHAWL,THE FARNEAR JOURNALS, GYPSY BONES, ALTAR MUSIC, CIRCLE OF MYSTERIES, WOMANCHRIST, BLESSINGS, FINDING STONE, CARING COMMUNITY, A CRY IN THE DESERT.
