Have you ever wondered about reality? Do you believe that you are able to perceive everything that exists here in this limited human dimension? Do you question life or just listen to and assume everyone else has the answers? If so, my book will shake you up, as it did me! I could not even write of these events until about 2 and a half years after they happened. This journey changed me and encouraged me to take a tremendous leap of faith.

I am claiming nothing based on science, however I KNOW that what I experienced in St. Bernadette's home in Lourdes, France was real! The cover of this, my newest book, A Matter Of Faith, attests to, in my opinion, the fact that we humans don't always see the reality of what is there. Actually, many of us will NOT even consider it. We will close our minds to even the possibility of such things! Affirming and holding to the quote of Stuart Chase...When confronted with such things as these, Believers will say no evidence is necessary, just as Non- Believers will state that No amount of evidence is possible!

Why not allow yourself to decide, after reading the memoir of my journey in my newest book, A Matter Of Faith: A Memoir of my Spiritual Journey to the Marian Apparitions in Europe?

About the Author

I was born and raised in Philadelphia. Pa. I went to Abp. Ryan H.S. for girls. I attended Bucks County Community College, then transferred to Flagler College in St. Augustine, Fla., where I graduated in 1975 with a degree in Psychology. Later on I went to Univ. of South Fla. on a scholarship, where I studied for a Masters Degree in Counseling. I have spent over 30 years counseling in many different venues, mostly with women on the fringe of society. I have worked at the Balto. Cty. Womens Detention Ctr.,where I ran the correctional drug program for female inmates. I next supervised the Harford County, Md., Intensive Outpt. Drug Program. Before working in the Women's prisons in Baltimore, I counseled the drug addicted, homeless population in Baltimore. I was appointed to the Harford County, Md. Advisory Board for Mental Health and Addictions, by the County Executive. I currently work on a part time basis for a Women's Domestic Violence Shelter in Delaware. Much of the fodder for my poetry comes from these life experiences and are geared toward tragic societal issues, with an attempt to keep an overall hopeful attitude in this broken world. I have always enjoyed writing about my life experiences and the people I have met along the journey, which at times have been raw and emotional. Through my poetry, I have tried to share some of those experiences with you, my readers. I hope you enjoy my work and in some small way can feel my heart coming through it....
