CC Webster is a hoot! We always laugh when we talk. Even so, I am moved by her story of her year from diagnosis to remission from cancer, which occurred between age 29 and age 30.
This book is her answer to the question, What does it mean to be one of the lucky ones that survive cancer?
In our conversation, you’ll find out how CC and I met seated side by side in a café downtown in New York City in a “divinely orchestrated” moment, what it was like to take the hardest thing she’d ever endured and turn it into a source of creative expression, and hopefully a source of inspiration for others, how readers are responding to the descriptions and truths she reveals, what its like to lay bare for the world one’s greatest vulnerabilities and to draw strength from them.
So, That Happened, is funny, touching, and honest, and it is a light in the darkness. You are not alone.
Join me for a delightful conversation with the Answer Diva, Debbra Lupien, author of the new international best-selling book Akasha Unleashed: The Missing Manual to You. I took this opportunity to ask questions about the Records: What are they? Why should we be interested in “reading” them? What’s it like to experience the Records? How do they help us find our purpose? And more.
Right in the middle, Debbra surprised me with some information she offered about my soul purpose. I hadn’t expected it. But it felt very affirming and “right” on a professional level. You’ll have to read the book to learn how you can reduce the dissonance between your ego self and your higher self and soul. And once you do, your plans could come to fruition more rapidly and in ways that delight you.
Renee Baribeau kindly invited me to participate in the I AM Symposium 2017, Winter Solstice Celebration, which runs from December 21 to January 12. You can still register to be sent daily links to interviews here: http://www.iamsymposium.com/ My discussion with Renee centered on the meaning of winter festivals that mark the darkest day of the year followed by the renewal of the light moving toward spring and newness of creation.
Also, I shared one of the basic techniques I advocate for accelerating the writing process. This is useful for other forms of creativity too, but is particularly good when a writer has set a clear intention and wants to support the unconscious mind to reveal more information. Learn about the What More? Technique during this half hour.

It was my pleasure today to speak with the writer of a seductive new novel of erotica that dares to look into the shadows of a woman’s life. Courtney Marchesani speaks so eloquently about the creative journey that led to the writing of the book, the formation of her central character and plot, and how writing the book was a part of a larger process of discovery and healing for her.
Visit Courtney’s website to learn more about her work in other areas. In addition to creativity and self-expressions, she’s quite the expert on herbs/plants and healing.
New York University college student Lucy Quigley, in recovery from an eating disorder, wrote an eloquent book to encourage other young women and men to seek treatment if they are experiencing compulsions related to food: including anorexia, binge eating, purging. Her message is simple: You deserve love, happiness, and attention.
You can purchase copies of Lucy’s book from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Indie Bound, and elsewhere.
Funny, perceptive, and practical—this compendium of memorable quotations from our favorite writers and great literary figures shows us that, as word smiths, we are not alone in how or why we choose to meet the challenge of the blank page. Despite the fact that writing is an often sloppy and sometimes frustrating process, it is also an exhilarating, joyful, entertaining, and even noble, endeavor, which, if done honestly and practiced faithfully, ultimately reveals every aspect of the human condition. Here you will find encouragement, advice, and motivation, along with belly laughs. A gift for everyone who writes, or longs to, THE WRITER’S BOOK OF INSPIRATION reads like the conversation at a gathering of old, close friends.
My friend, Bahamian author and painter Tina Klonaris-Robinson has just published her first art book. She’s become an “accidental” painter in her forties, drawn to the canvas as a form of meditation. As a result, special energy is imbued in every one of her works of art. They’re healing paintings filled with angels and sea creatures. Natural. Innocent. They sort of remind me of the Aboriginal art of Australia because they have so many dots in them. I keep telling her I see the dots as cells alive with energy. It is my honor to be her editor and consultant. She’s changing lives with her work.
