I am an eccentric individual and love learning about new things. This has taken me to some very interesting places, and has changed my perception of this world in many ways over the years. But if you take away all of it, in my heart I am a simple artist who loves creating worlds in her imagination.
What's the story behind your latest book?
The story is about Tarot, and my journey with it.
Tarot has been an exceptional friend to me. It had my back when I was down, and helped me grow into a better person. It also has a wicked sense of humor. You won't believe how awesome a deck can be once you connect with it deeply!
My books tap into that place. I want to show others how to connect with their cards the way I connect with mine. It is my gift to the Tarot community for all the exceptional life experiences Tarot has brought me so far.
Why did you pick up Tarot?
Tarot happened to me in the creepiest way imaginable. It came to me in a dream. Yes, seriously!
At that time I was dating someone and I have a tendency to obsess when I am infatuated (I mean, all of us do that!). So in this weird dream, the boy I was dating gave me a Tarot card. I had never dreamt of Tarot before that and did not know anything about them. Not even the names on the cards. But I still knew that card was the King of Swords.
Later when I found out that my dream coincided with reality, I was intrigued. It was only when I got another dream of this kind that I realized that it was time to buy a deck of cards. The rest is history.
I am really glad Tarot came to me the way it did. It was the Universe's gift.
Reversals are a controversial topic in the Tarot community. But what most don't realize is that if you look beneath the surface there is nothing scary about reversed cards at all. You just need to think a little unconventionally to read them! This book busts a lot of myths, and gives you the exact tools and tricks needed to accurately read reversals each time.
