About me

Introduction I am a freelance nonfiction writer based in the San Francisco Bay Area. My biggest 'scoop' was interviewing Brian Jones - the original bass player with the Rolling Stones- for my high school newspaper. For more than 15 years I wrote newsletters, publicity materials and proposals for the Transcendental Meditation organization. I also taught the TM program for more than 35 years, which has deeply informed my interest in development of consciousness. I have a Bachelor's degree in Dance from UCLA and taught creative dance and movement for ages five through 92. In 1986 I designed the senior citizen exercise program for Summit Medical Center's community outreach program in Oakland, California. In my writing career I focus on the arts, culture, and the environment.
