About the Author:

Before I even start this description, I want you to know the credentials listed may have something to do, along with my age, with whatever I have become in the way of a wise woman who writes. But they are only incidentally related to the content of my works of fiction. The writer's urge goes back to my initial choice of an English Major in college. There, in a Shakespeare course, I received an A- for a paper on King Lear with the recommendation I should become a Psychology Major. I took the hint, and I've never been sorry, but now is my chance to go back to my early interest. So, for the fancy details. I am a Professor Emerita at Southern Connecticut State University where one of my special areas was the Psychology of Women, and of the Adler Graduate School with its emphasis on social psychology.The academic phase of my career was supported by a Ph.D in Personality and Social Psychology. That formal training was enhanced by the real-life experience of being the mother to my son and my daughter and the wife for 20 years to their father. And now two grandchildren, one of each. Overlapping the latter years of my teaching career was the development of a private therapy practice, first in Connecticut and then in Chaska, Minnesota where I am currently a Licensed Psychologist. Nationally I am a registered Health Service Provider in Psychology "Let Yourself Grow" is the theme of my work, along with "Forgiveness Options." The latter has led to the publication of "When to Forgive" and "Forgiving One Page at a Time." I hope they are, as I intended, helps for people making decisions about whether and how to forgive. Always present has been a lay person's interest in women of the Bible. All these, plus my age-based arrival at the wise-woman stage, have come together in my current fictional offering, "Figs & Pomegranates & Special Cheeses." This is a love story which does not require religiosity to be enjoyed. It is not a self-help book, nor is it an academic tome. It is a whole new direction for me -- the pleasure of writing fiction to appeal to everyone. At least one hopes so. It is an adventure in love, using the Biblical story of Job as its base. Eventually you'll be able to find me and special offers on my web site currently being developed: forgivenessoptions.com
