From Michigan to Malibu~
Raised by wild bookworms in the Kalamazoo city library, I cut my reading teeth on the Encyclopedia Britannica, Rudyard Kipling, and Dr. Seuss. Influenced by action-packed Westerns, I decided to become John Wayne when I grew up.
But dratz, he had a lock on the job! When my parents decided they'd had enough of snow, we migrated to Southern California. I became Malibu Molli: queen of surfin', sunburn, and skin cancer.
College, babies, and the other man~
After college (UCLA), I married my high school sweetheart and settled into suburban life with first one baby, then a second. Diapers, dishes, and non-verbal dialogue with little people (toddlers) drove me to craft
and quilting classes. After I'd reupholstered everything in the house, and made quilts for everybody, including the cat, I began to sell my handiwork at local art-and-craft fairs.
Then, my husband introduced me to the “other” influential man in my life, Dale Carnegie. After graduating from The Carnegie Sales and Marketing Courses, I went national (the 70s equivalent of going viral) and worked with "big guys" in publishing.
I created various freelance publishing gigs as a Time-Life acquisitions and context editor, designer for Better Homes and Gardens quilts and crafts, syndicated columnist, and eight-times published author.
And then, it was the 80s and the "new age" movement was in full swing. The xxxxxx of channeling, tapping into wisdom from the consciousness surrounding Earth, was growing in popularity and offered a method of learning asd;lfjal;dfj;alsdjf asdjf . Hmmm.

Our daughter suggested that my husband and I meet a teacher new to her. Dr. Peebles. And so we did. Much to our surprise, after the group of 40 adults settled, a muscular, ex-Marine came into the room, sat comfortablly in a chair, explained his role as a faciliatator, would be channeling Dr. Peebles who would speak for a moment about the meaning of the "new age" movement, and then answer our questions. He led a brief prayer asking for spiritual illumination and voila! he bgan to speak i
If you want to hear Dr. Peebles speaking, here's a link to a brief excerpt.
In 2002 I opened a virtual office, getpublishednow.biz, to help wannabee authors craft the "must have" submission documents they needed to land agents who would guide them through the getting-published maze.
Having experienced the frustration, fear, and stress of being stuck in victim-hood, my husband and I decided to share the spiritual psychology that had helped us turn our lives around.
We launched a subscriber-supported newsletter, SPIRIT SPEAKS, which attained a readership of 100,000 in America and six foreign countries.
And now, we're re-purposing SPIRIT SPEAKS into a book series, available in paperback, ebook, and audio formats. The goal is to create 33 topic-focused SPIRIT SPEAKS books, sharing guidance on life issues like love, finances, health, family relationships, sexuality, addiction, personal responsibility, reincarnation, judgment, raising children, aging, terrorism, inner peace/world peace, fear, death, and more.

The wisdom and wit in every SPIRIT SPEAKS book is intended to encourage you to begin (or strengthen) your spiritual quest and awaken to the magic of you. As you evolve your awareness, you'll tap into your inner wisdom as you consciously create a meaningful life filled with success, mindfulness, excitement, wonder, health, lasting relationships, and fulfillment . . . all the good stuff you (and everyone else) desire and deserve.
Enjoy a complimentary copy of our first book,
LIFE: Before, During and After,
and a 25-page mini book that will
introduce you to our spirited contributors.
