I am a middle-aged, cradle-Catholic with a degree in Theology, a Masters in Religious Education, and 27 years of theology teaching experience — mainly High School some College. Now I work as an Administrative Assistant in a Jewish Synagogue.

I am a wife, and a mother of two sons.

I am a survivor of childhood sexual abuse.

I am the mother of a suicide victim.

And in 2005 I managed to make it through Hurricane Katrina.

I love my family. I love to write. I am not sure about the Church any more. And God and I are not currently speaking — but I haven’t given up.

I am currently working on a book on Grief and Loss that seems to be trying to become a book on Hope. We’ll see how it works out.
