Im a writer & author, culinary tour creator & guide and catalytic life transition coach. My mottos is great lives dont just happen and that philosophy permeates all that I undertake. I write about life, food, travel, culture and sexuality and aging. I develop new models for thinking about human potential. I work with individuals seeking to actively pursue a novescent life. I promote human creativity wherever possible. My passion is to help people live their best life, regardless of age.


As a blogger I focus on a couple of areas: off the beaten track Algarve, Portugal with a focus on food and culture . . . and personal growth, especially as it relates to a senior womans experience of life and sexuality.


At 62, I chose to leave a 30-year marriage that was no longer working. I spent several years rediscovering myself while creating a new life. I recently began exploring the world of intimate relationships, extending my love and mastery of technology by embracing the post-industrial freak show called on-line dating. 


My first book The Alchemy of Energy will be available as a 2nd Edition e-book late in 2015.  Algarve Dining, my restaurant review guide, is being up-dated after an extensive writing trip to Portugal and will be converted into a smartphone app. Deciphering the Portuguese Menu and Oh Those F Words, a book of essays, will be published as e-books by 2016.  Im currently also working with a photographer on a photo essay book about sexuality and aging.


Im an NLP Master Practitioner and a WEL-Systems Educator. I have developed Quantum Dimensions, a personal growth methodology. I have a BA in Anthropology and an MA in Human Systems Intervention.
