The Little Prince. It inspired me to be more observant of my world, to embrace wonder, to believe in consciousness beyond the stars, and to always empower my imagination as something wonderful.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
1. The White Book by Ramtha The greatest wisdom I have been exposed to in my life. 2. Hyperspace, by Michio Kaku. I have always found the thought of a visionary enticing. This book definitely expanded the understanding I had gained previously from my scientific background. 3. The 9 faces of Christ, by Eugene Whitworth. This story of a great mind aligned with the source is inspiring in multiple pathways. 4. The Little Prince. Much later in my life I came back and truly enjoyed the depths of its message. Its wisdom is immortalized in its simplicity. 5. The Brain that Changes Itself, by Norman Doidge. I have great passion for understanding, and science in its ideal is all about understanding. I like the idea that our attitude determines the state of health of our body.

Creating something wonderful.
What is your writing process?
I do not write if I am not inspired. but when the fire is upon me, burning brightly, I unfold thought into imagery and words. and it flows. I am always amazed at what comes forth.
Writing for me is about remembering something that came from a deeper sphere of feeling within me, and allowing it to make itself known.
