When The Closed Heart Opens

When The Closed Heart Opens: Lessons Learned on the Journey of Life is my new book, forthcoming February 6, 2018. I wrote this book with the intent that it would serve as a guide to women's empowerment. Please share it with the women in your life and network.

Common Boston

Boston Common Magazine featured me and Henry in its December issue. The article was titled, "Find Out How These Boston Locals Are Making a Positive Impact on The Community," and I'm sharing it with you here.

Togetherness

It's been more than 34 years since my husband, Henry, and I were married, and I want to share this story published in the Boston Globe about us, because it was the main inspiration for my soon to be published book When The Closed Heart Opens.

The article is called "Togetherness" and you can read it here.
