I am a speaker, author, mentor and chaplain. I speak about what I have learned from my life about Daily Practice, Spirituality, Cancer, Chronic Illness, and Mobility Issues. I try to do it with a sense of humor! I tell people that I’ve lived several lifetimes in this one, because it often feels that way.
I’ve lead public rituals, done patient advocacy, taught spiritual practices, and raised a son who has cerebral palsy and is wheelchair dependent. I’ve traveled across the country and around the world and studied religious practices in many different cultures and environments.
I’ve written two books and several articles on Spirituality, Leadership, and Wiccan Practices. I spent a year as one of the hosts of Blog Talk Radio “The Priestess Show”. I have participated in several Anthologies and am currently working on a book about Daily Practice.
I am the published author of a series of early chapter books called the Dirkle Smat Adventure Books. These mini-mysteries are aimed at the 1st and 2nd grade reading level. I have also published a book for all ages called “Our States Have Crazy Shapes: Panhandles, Bootheels, Knobs and Points” which explains the quirky stories behind the jigsaw puzzle map of our United States.
Coming in summer of 2017: two picture books. More information to follow.
Blue Spectrum Books is a young publishing house created for the purpose of helping authors publish interesting books with a wide market. Our docket is currently full so we are not taking submissions, but will update this listing when that changes.
