The Wayfaring Traveler Storytelling Series, from last to first: Earth-Whisperers explores her Blue Ridge Mountain organic farm; Call to Adventure the carpe diem of living; Whale Rider of the Tide launched her written storytelling: on her journey from Maine Island to Rocky Mountain home, a western odyssey.

She has various academic credentials, but more vividly, she has long life experience. A former organic farmer, a gardener and world traveler–choose life, only that and always!–she writes about history, community, earth changes and hegemony, truth-tellers, and earth-friendly futures.

Blessed and cursed with a lightning-struck life, Wayfarer has honed her storytelling skills by listening to elders, reading aloud to children, classical singing, and small time big roles: Lady M. in the so-called “Scottish Play”, Kate in “Taming of the Shrew”, and Aldonza/ Dulcinea in “Man of La Mancha.” She lives near Taos, NM in the high country of the American Southwest, a hotbed of creativity!

I had a farm, an organic farm in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. Friends who loved it called it Magic Valley–curving into another world of bright-water trout streams, rich bottom land, flower meadows and woodland, their fragrance rising to meet you. How would it be, I’d wondered, to circle the arc of solstice and equinox living as an earth-whisperer, not a brutalizer?

Wayfaring Traveler is the book that launches you into the heart of America and planetary change. Homeless and scared witless, Wafarer went plummeting into fiscal hemorrhage of downsizing and diaspora. Made long journey in old car; met interesting characters; lived in a tent. What mattered finally? Meet-your-eye people, truth in a handshake, the call of the wild, and seize-the-day.
