I have been a seeker of truth and a teller of stories for as long as I can remember. My fascination with words began during my childhood in Pittsburgh, PA; took me to Northwestern University, where I received a BA and MA in English literature; and then to Paris, France, to indulge my fantasy of living in a Left Bank writer’s garret of my own.

Upon returning from Paris, I landed in New York City and became an independent journalist, while working briefly as a senior publicist at Christie’s the international art auction house. Over the past decades, my articles and essays have appeared in newspapers and magazines such as The New York Times, International Herald Tribune, Chicago Tribune, Architectural Digest, Town & Country, Art & Antiques, and Spirituality & Health, among others, for whom I have written about art, culture, travel, and spiritual and social issues.

I have had the privilege of interviewing numerous noted figures, including His Highness the Aga Khan, architect Richard Meier, writers Toni Morrison, Doris Lessing and Erica Jong, choreographer Twyla Tharp, and artists such as Louise Bourgeois, Sean Scully and Kiki Smith. My articles have taken me throughout the world. In addition to traveling, for me “one of the greatest joys in writing is having written,” as Henry James said. 

Along the way, my passion for fiction led me to Columbia University’s Creative Writing Program, where I was a senior writing fellow, having studied with the late novelist Raymond Kennedy.

I am the author of the novel The Third Muse, a metaphysical, time-travel mystery set in the international art world. My spiritual travel memoir Sojourns of the Soul: One Woman’s Journey around the World and into Her Truth was a gold-medal winner in the Nautilus Book Awards. Both books carry a heart-centered message for our time. My previous books focus on art and collecting.

In connection with my books, I have been interviewed by television, radio and print media. I’m a member of the Author’s Guild and New York Women in Communications. After many years in New York City, I found my way to the beautiful high-desert town of Taos, NM, which I now call home. Along with my books, my ongoing inner exploration and expansion has inspired my transformational talks, workshops and retreats worldwide celebrating the timeless, sacred teachings of the world’s wisdom traditions.

I am also trained in a variety of healing modalities and have a private healing and mentoring practice. All my work carries a healing vibration meant to catalyze deep personal shifts in consciousness, expanded awareness and recognition of one’s soul purpose. Drawing on my longtime spiritual inquiry and practice, I find joy in inspiring others to ignite and accelerate a fearless journey toward wholeness and fulfillment.
