I was born in 1952 in Pennsylvania. I worked various clerical jobs for 40 years. Attending college part-time, I completed courses in philosophy, ethics and psychology; however, I do not have a college degree or a title. Suffering from crippling anxiety for most of my life, I began journaling in 1990 to alleviate the pain. When I retired in 2014, I began to compile my story into a memoir entitled, "Especially to Those Who Suffer: A Memoir of Truths and Miracles." I am excited to say that my book was recently published in April, 2020.
