My entire story is in my Spiritual Memoir titled:
Will the Real God Please Stand Up: My First Eighty Years
to be published first as an ebook in January, 2013.
Beneath the surface facts of my life are these:
I am a traditional non-traditionalist, a late bloomer, in the world of creative dreams. I never even had any dreams. I believed the lies of my family, my church and my society. It was history. I didn’t even know that I had herstory to finish and to write.
In my early thirties, it took a nervous breakdown for my soul to breakthrough to my consciousness. That breakdown was for me an existential crisis through which I finally awoke to myself and to my choices. What was I to do? If I followed the rules of my small world, I was to stay at home, take care of my husband and raise perfect children who would take care of us in our old age. Much as I loved my husband and my children, I couldn’t do it!
The story of my search is the subject of this memoir. Essentially, when I finally awoke out of the stupor where I had been “sleeping girl in a sleeping world” for the previous 32 years, I made some life-changing choices. I questioned everything in my life and in my church and in my society and became “winged woman singing her song.” I went back to school a few years later, beginning with the community college in 1969 and finishing my doctorate in 1977. I began practicing psychology and spiritual psychotherapy in 1979.
My passion is spiritual writing and my granddaughters. I’ve been writing since I was a young child. I entered the world of professional writing when my first book Codependency: PowerLoss, SoulLoss. published in 1994. I was then 64 years old.
