I was the firstborn of 11 children born to a working class Catholic family in Baltimore. A highly sensitive child, I sought refuge in books, in play, in writing and imagination. I began the deep search for meaning at a young age and attended a high school for girls who were planning to enter the School Sister of Notre Dame. It was the one of the best choices I ever made because the curriculum was the challenging and living with more than 100 other women taught me many things about how people relate to each other.After a brief foray in convent life, I married before I was 20, birthed 5 children and grew up with them by seeking answers to their endless curious questions. Suddenly single after 22 years of marriage, I threw myself into my work as newspaper reporter and editor and back into my beloved books of poetry, psychology and spirituality. Avenues of new insight came from Landmark Education, Joseph Campbell, Matthew Fox, Osho, Richard Bach, Natalie Goldberg, and Meg Wheatley among many, many others.
My second husband, my beloved Gord, appeared like a miracle in my life less than a month before my mother became seriously ill and my dear oldest brother dropped dead of an aneurysm. Gord kept me sane during one of the hardest periods of my life.
