"Today, while leafing through an old photo album, I see her life
differently. She made her duplex apartment into a temple. She
often lit prayer candles and smudged her apartment with lavender
and sage. If it wasn’t for the safety of her apartment, I’m sure the
demons in her head would have conquered her years ago."

An excerpt from My Mother's Duplex Apartment.

I am an author, poet, humorist, and short story writer from Palm Springs, California. I write about various topics, from my early childhood in Philadelphia to my years as a family therapist and finally to my soul-searching in California. These are poetic narratives that may have humorous or serious content or both. Either way, I hope my poetry and stories resonate with you.
