I would love to have you participate in my website. Is there a book you love? Tell me about it in 100 words or less, and I'll put it in my Books of Interest section. Is there a political comment you'd like to make? I'll put it in my Civil Discourse section. All comments must be respectful and constructive.  

My muse is starting to feel the need to speak. Check her out on her very own page--The Muse Speaks

I'd love to hear from you and you can contact me at

If you need psychiatric advice, please contact a real psychiatrist and not a virtual one like me.


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




Life is about change, sometimes it’s painful, sometimes it’s beautiful, but most of the time it’s both.
