Can you tell us who or what was the inspiration behind your book?

Many of us, myself included, have been caught between working on and dreaming about fixing our lives – hoping that the elusive law of attraction would magically make our lives better. I believe that angels have inspired ideas that actually work for us, down through the ages. The book contains some of those ideas that work. I wanted to live the Prayer of St. Francis – “…let me sow love… where there is darkness, light….” I wanted to feel happy and have happy relationships – but I was not.

This book, Open Your Heart for Happy Relationships – 10 Shift Keys – What Your Angels Have Been Trying to Tell You for Centuries, is the end result of my own search for practical solutions that worked in the real world.

Is this your first published book and if so, can you tell us your experiences in finding a publisher for it?

I self-published through Amazon – so I did not go through that agonizing process!

Where do you live and if I were coming to town, where would we go to talk books?

I live in Phoenix, Arizona. The public library in Scottsdale has comfortable reading chairs and beautiful garden views. The Poisoned Pen bookstore in Scottsdale is great, but it focuses more on fiction.

When you’re not writing, what do you do to relax and have fun?

I am a voracious reader, so I always have both kindle and hardcopy books going! I also find a lot of peace and inspiration in the outdoors and love to go to the White Mountains here in Arizona. I also love to dance!

Do you make a living off your books or do you have another job?

I am going back and forth from semiretirement to working in healthcare quality and risk management – my career for years. I have not quite found the balance between plenty of freedom and plenty of money!

In your opinion, what makes a good book great?

The ability to both touch the intellect and the heart.

Psychologists tell us the thing we think we’d most like to grow up to be when we’re ten years old is our avocation. What did you want to be?

An explorer – traveling the world. I use my insatiable curiosity – and books to satisfy some of that. My goal is to travel more in the near future.

Can you give us a short excerpt from your book?

You probably would like some magic stardust to change your life and your relationships. You may have been trying to be loving, light hearted and to live a happy life, but it has been less than a success. Perhaps you read something and decide to change. But you don’t know exactly how and quickly fall back into the same patterns, just as I did. This book will give you practical shifts you can make in your life. I will be showing you what the angels had been trying to show me for years: how to shift to love, open my heart, and have happier relationships. If you make these shifts, you will become more relaxed, have more fun, and draw in the very best from your relationships. You will have the magic stardust.

There are only two reasons to make these shifts:

  • You will feel lighter and happier.
  • You will attract people, places and events, which are also lighter and happier.

When you are feeling lighter and happier and have attracted the same, you will find that your relationships have evolved, as well. They will be fixed in amazing ways. The easiest way to explain this is to think about each of your relationships as a teeter-totter. You are on one end and your partner, child, boss, or friend is on the other end. When you shift to lighten your heart, it is like lightening the weight on your end of the teeter-totter. The person on the other end must change, as well. But you cannot control what choices the other person will make. Sometimes the other person may change in ways that are happy and pleasing and keep things in balance. Sometimes the other person will refuse to play and will move away from the relationship. If so, it will be OK. Because you are shifting your life to happiness and love—another partner, friend, or job will show up to take their place. They will have lighter hearts and be in balance with the changes you are making to lighten your heart and enjoy your life.

What’s next for you?

I am working on my next book – which is how to handle despair – “the dark night of the soul” that many of us encounter – again – practical things to do when nothing seems to be working any more….
