I have lived in West Africa, traveled on four continents, and made my home in varied regions of the U.S. These days my writer window looks out on Austin, Texas. I am a biographer and occasional poet and blogger.
The Story of Baha’u’llah: Promised One of All Religions is a biography of the Prophet-Founder of the Baha’i Faith. In writing it I used the techniques of fiction to tell a true story – an approach called creative nonfiction – which readers say, “made me feel like I was there.” The website offers further enrichments to augment the book.
What else appeals to me? I love the language of poetry and that we are learning the language 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 fresh, undreamed-of possibilities.
Contact me if you would like an author visit – virtual or in-person – to your reading group or community event. Or share how The Story of Baha’u’llah connects with you. My background includes a B.A. in English Literature, an M.A. concentration in Teaching English as a Second Language, and training as a writing workshop leader.
My creative paradigm image, supported by my blog, suggest principles that take the myth out of what it takes to be creative. Currently I am writing a second biography, ‘Abdu’l-Baha and the Destiny of America, a companion volume to the first. My husband and I enjoy the company of two grown sons and their families. I also enjoy a little travel, a good mystery, and catching up with friends.
