Author bio

The power of story has always mesmerized me since Dad’s tales of Chirper Cricket. I got a PhD and an MD to pursue another kind of adventure, medical research, had two kids, and tried to settle down as a drug developer for mental and sexual problems. Drugs were band-aids, so I read, followed gurus, and attended workshops about shame and healing. I sweated in tents, swam with dolphins, and walked hot coals. Then I started drafting stories to entertain and inspire readers about our perennial problems—religious hypocrisy, forbidden love, misogyny, toxic masculinity, racism, Big Brother, and how to live a meaningful life.
