About meI'm the author of "The Piercing Bible--The Definitive Guide to Safe Body Piercing" (Random House/Crossing Press, May 2009).

I’ve performed over 40,000 piercings during my career since the 1980s when I began piercing professionally at the first piercing specialty studio in the United States. I am renowned in my industry as a pioneer for inventing a number of piercing placements and helping to bring the art from the fringes of society toward the mainstream.

For over 12 years I owned and operated my own piercing studio in the French Quarter of New Orleans. The business closed in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. My husband and I relocated to the Yucatán in Mexico, where we reside with seven dogs, a cat, and two pygmy owls.

I currently serve on the Board of Directors of the Association of Professional Piercers as Medical Liaison, and I’m a recipient of the President’s Lifetime Achievement Award from the organization. I write a monthly column for the body art industry trade publication, Pain Magazine.

About my libraryUnfortunately, when I moved from the US to Mexico, I left my book collection behind. So I can't look at the shelf to remind myself what I've read!

Absolutely! I adore your book and will probably have to purchase a second copy, as I've managed to practically wear out the copy I already have. It was most useful on at least 2 of the papers I have to write for anthropology classes, this past school year! It's by far one of the most useful and informative books I've ever owned.

Oh yeah! And kudos to Powell's Books, here in Portland OR, for having it IN STOCK when Amazon was still telling me that it was on order and not due to even be printed for another three months (that was back in March).
