I’ve been a writer all my life. My earliest preserved work was “The Story of Tommy Carrot,” a terribly-spelled brief tragedy about a root vegetable, which was inexplicably (to me) rejected by the TV show Zoom. Then there was the aggrieved letter to President Nixon, demanding an end to the Vietnam War. A couple decades after those false starts, I really hit my stride–working as a campus minister in higher education and writing about the intersection of faith and life. After 25 years in the field, I’m delighted to announce that my first book, Finding God in Ordinary Time, will be published on September 17, 2018 by Green Writers Press.
Catholic campus ministry has been my “day job” (with its share of nights and weekends) since 1993, first as the Associate Director of West Chester University’s Newman Center and currently as Director of Campus Ministry at Gwynedd Mercy University near Philadelphia. But as the old folk song says, your life is more than your work, and your work is more than your job. I have a passion for public speaking, and am eager to bring my voice to a wider audience of faithful seekers.
My Jesuit education taught me to find God in all things, and so here on this website you will find reflections and ruminations on many things, original monologues of women in Scripture and essays originally published in Liguorian and Praying magazines, as well as information about my book and speaking events. I hope you find something that touches your spirit. And if you are part of a group that needs a speaker for a retreat, evening of recollection, etc., please be in touch.
