Thanks for your interest in my work! My newest book is the novel Warrior Won. This yoga/mindfulness/spiritual novel, called "compelling and fun" by Foreword Reviews, is a follow-up to Downward Dog, Upward Fog, which was a finalist in their small-press fiction-book-of-the-year competition.


I am also a longtime magazine and web writer. For more than 20 years, I have written engaging, informative, and entertaining articles, often on quick deadlines, for numerous national consumer publications and websites, especially on the topics of health, lifestyle, holistic health, science, parenting, family issues and general-interest topics. I am also a former magazine editor.


My magazine writings have won numerous awards, including a nomination for a prestigious National Magazine Award and a first-place outstanding-article award from the American Society of Journalists & Authors.

My articles have appeared in O: The Oprah Magazine, Vice, Parents, Prevention, Glamour, Self, Reader’s Digest, Good Housekeeping, Consumer Reports and many others. You can find a sampling of my many articles here.

I am also the author of a book of essays, Enlightened Parenting: A Mom Reflects on Living Spiritually With Kids, which was a finalist in two awards competitions.

I am a member of many great writing organizations, including the American Society of Journalists and Authors (ASJA), the Association for Health Care Journalists (AHCJ), PEN America, the Florida Writer's Association, and the National League of American Pen Women.

I am fortunate to live in beautiful South Florida, where I get to wake up every morning to this view.
