About Me I'm a life coach, a writer, a nomad, a book shaman and a nondescript heathen. I don geekdom like other girls shoulder a Fendi. I light up each day by coaching visionaries who are ready to set out on their heroâ�&iu
ml;¿½s journeys, but canâ�&ium
l;¿½t quite find their way. Together we map brilliant paths toward their futures, set and hold bold intentions and slay the dragons that are blocking them from their life purpose. Once they arrive at their destinations we begin building the foundations of their empires.

Another of my most joyous endeavors comes from "applying ass to chair." I began my writing career at the age of seven when I penned my first brilliant short story about witches with carbuncles. As a teenager my writing moved toward the morose when I attempted to write my vast memoir at the age of fourteen. Finally, at seventeen, with my towering experience in regards to the matters of love, I wrote a few pages of a romance novel. I am currently working on a young adult novel which I plan to finish this century-ish. My 10,000 hours (of Malcolm Gladwell fame) in "applying ass to chair" spawned my Book Shaman practice which brings me complete bliss. I still have trouble believing that every day I get to help those who've always longed to birth their own book into form and out into the world.

I've moved over thirty times, hence the nomadic nature, but for now I reside in the Wild, Wild West with the loves of my life: my boyfriend and two pups So-Kr8z and Sancho. To some this urge to move might seem exciting, however, there have been times I've ended up in the deepest bowels of our great Mother Earth. For example, I spent a year living in Rawlins, Wyoming where I was blown back and forth across the road and where I ran home from school every day on the lookout for dark vans that kidnapped children. I once peed my pants while frantically searching for my latchkey.
