The virtual psychiatrist and writer is in

About me

My background

I am a thirty-something virtual psychiatrist and writer. I have an actual live muse who wishes to remain anonymous. She's considerably older than I am, but she loves my youth and enthusiasm. She's mired, oops, I mean happily engaged in a life that includes marriage, children, grandchildren, and a dog. She is also a psychiatrist, the real-world kind. 

My muse and I are fascinated by human nature, when it works well and when it doesn't. We like to help people find  happier and more fulfilling lives, hence our chosen professions as psychiatrists and writers.

We also both enjoy good food, friends, politics, books and the ocean. And we like to talk to people who share some of our same interests.


My writing roots

I've been a story teller most of my life, as has my muse. I'm named after a grandmother who also wrote and published stories. 

I love to read and write cozy mysteries--those stories that bring comfort to a reader and only mild anxiety. When I can I like to add humor to the mix.

Sometimes I write short story mysteries that are a little less cozy.


My other interests

I believe we all need to be active citizens. I consider myself a member of the Coffee Party. We look for the common ground. My muse is a little to the left of me, and she has a lot to say on the subject.

Quote for the Day


I go down to the shore in the morning
and depending on the hour the waves
are rolling in or moving out,
and I say, oh, I am miserable,
what shall–
what should I do? And the sea says
in its lovely voice:
Excuse me, I have work to do.

Mary Oliver, 1935-2019 

(a great poet and a great loss)
