- About Me
- I started out as a fiction reader, and then discovered a lot to like about non-fiction. LibraryThing is helping me find new fiction writers. I write for natural living publications on topics like macrobiotic recipes, elderhood, and the Fukushima nuclear disaster. I get motivated to write an article when I see that no (or not enough) attention has been paid to an important topic in print.
My writing heroes include Alice Miller (in Switzerland), Marcea Weber Klein (a macrobiotic counselor and psychotherapist in Sydney and the Blue Mountains, Australia), Jay M. Gould, PhD, George Orwell (AKA Eric Blair), Edward R. Tufte, PhD, Peace Pilgrim and Raj Patel.
