When I was 17, I began to meditate and spent a month in an ashram in India. Five years later I married and became a devout Catholic, much to the surprise of my Unitarian mother and grandmother. Today, a happy divorcee, I dedicated to feeling and honoring the presence of God in my life (see Finding Ecstacy ). My 16-year writing career includes editing the Winston-Salem Chronicle, an African-American weekly, and working for nearly four years as a minority in black-owned businesses. Nowadays I write public relations material on a freelance basis for corporations, medical centers and universities. Once I directed public relations for one of the country's most favored groups, the Girl Scouts, and more recently I tried my hand at the toughest public relations cause in America: human organ donation. You'll find my writing in Southern Exposure, Business North Carolina, Hospitals, Southern LifeStyles and a number of regional newspapers and magazines. I am a member of the National Writers Union, the North Carolina Writers Network, the Washington Independent Writers group and the Women's Independent Network. I send money to Jim and Sarah Brady on a regular basis. A member of the local Sierra Club Sprawl Committee, I am keenly interested in how cities and communities can grow and still be friendly to human beings. One of my current heroes is author James Howard Kunstler.
