Meet the Author

My obsession with India has kept me on the road in various places across the world while I work on having a life that allows me to travel, allows me to plumb the depths of my creativity and keeps me in sporadic contact with my family. It's the life of a rolling stone, gathering no moss but also with a momentum of it's own. Sometimes there is a feeling of "stop this stone, I want to get off" or at least change direction. The direction I long for is straight to the heart of my grandchildren who keep growing so fast and at such a rate that it scares me sometimes! And sometimes when I am furtherest away is the times when I want to be close to hand for my family.


But given this little niggle and prod at my heart strings I also know and believe that if you are living and acting according to your dharma then you are always exactly where you need to be in life and that your soul and spirit do not recognize physical boundaries. We all take on a shape with which to experience life and I happen to believe that we get to experience as many shapes and forms and experiences as it takes for the soul to realize that we are all part of the Universal Oneness which is the Dream of the great Creator. It's this belief in action which has become my life, a life that is meandering through the scenic route instead of along the super highway. Wandering with a purpose that is between me and The Dreamer, stopping in wonder at the beauty of His Imagination and chuckling at His Divine sense of humor!
