Finding the Divine in the Details

Thanks, Book Club Mom

Who’s that indie author?

I’m grateful and honored to be included in an author feature at Barb Vitelli’s Book Club Mom blog this week:

My palm’s lifeline accurately predicted a lot of different facets to my work life.

I’ve experienced them with people of all ages in Asia, Europe, and the U.S., but through it all, I’ve also always been a writer. 12063397_917792491640690_8686178482501438770_n

For years I did the writing that others needed or wanted done. I’m grateful to have lasted long enough to finally do what my heart wants: get lost with a few mysterious questions in the shaping of book-length fiction.”

  1. Hi Phyllis,

    Well done, you! 🙂

  2. Just saw this – thanks for the shout out!

  3. “I used to write what OTHER PEOPLE wanted me to write…now I can write what my heart desires” (paraphrase). I don’t think I know anyone enjoying “retirement” as much as you. And, even though you did so much of what others wanted (being a mom, etc.), it all was “in place.” You lived your life to the full both then and now, never afraid to show your age (at 21 or at 41) and you are/were sensitive to all those around you. Dr. Mary never knew how you could move so fast! I laugh at that. I guess some people can be in several places at the same time. H’mmm. That’s a thought. Maybe it’s possible to actually be everywhere at the same time. Perhaps, time is not what we think it is.
