Hi there, and namaste!

I’m the author of CHERRIES IN WINTER: MY FAMILY’S RECIPE FOR HOPE IN HARD TIMES (Random House) and BEACH GLASS (Bell Bridge Books), among other books.

I’m a former Senior Editor at O, the Oprah Magazine, and I’ve contributed to Good HousekeepingJane Magazine, LatinaRolling StoneDetails, the Huffington Post, and more. I’ve made live national appearances on The Today Show, The Early Show, National Public Radio, and other big deals and somehow not been nervous (must be all that Yoga).

I’m also a certified Yoga instructor, and I made an iTunes app, Take A Yoga Break, a series of yoga-based moves to do at your desk to counteract the evil effects of long-term sitting. I did the drawings for TAYB, too.

If you want to say hi, email me at Thanks for stopping by!
