Although it’s customary to have an About page on websites these days, I think what’s true about me belongs not only here but also on the Spiritual Mentor page.
Writing is what I do.
I write all sorts of things, all the time: novels, plays, poems, blog posts, grants, even textbooks. A client asked me once how I schedule the time to write. I looked at her somewhat quizzically and said, “I don’t, but I don’t schedule time to breathe either.” I write every day because I’m happy when I do.
I have the first essay I ever wrote—in 1963. The first sentence is: “I like to think about fairies and witches.” I still do, except now I call it writing fiction, most particularly The Mex Mysteries.
The Mex Mysteries
Based in New York City, Mexicali Rose “you can call me Mex” Stone is above all a human being having a spiritual experience. She’s an intuitive investigator who solves her cases from the inside out. By listening to the inner voice she calls Spirit, Mex catches her culprit, and always learns something about herself.
Last November, my oldest friend in the world double-dared me to write a romance novel which was our bread-and-butter reading during high school. The result was Attending Physician, and it was so much fun I started writing another one the day I finished the first one.
I’ve been a spiritual teacher, counselor, and mentor for 35 years, so I write nonfiction as well. My latest is an intuitive translation of the second-most translated book of all time—the Tao Te Ching — called Tao for Now.
I've been writing Seeds for nineteen years--I think the only thing I've done longer is breathe! I collect ideas all year round and sent out short emails of inspiration once a week — quotes or images along with my meditations on those messages.
