New in 2020: Helen and the Masters
I'm excited to announce a book that has gripped me for more than six years until I could finally complete it and let it go into the world. Helen and the Masters: A Portrait of a California Mystic is a story about my great-grandmother.
Born into an artistic, cultured family in New York, the daughter of a publisher, Helen came west to Oakland and Sacramento in 1905 with her new husband, a Dutch-American from an old Bay Area family. They raised seven children to adulthood.
Along the way, Helen found a talent for, and fascination with, automatic writing -- something that made others very uncomfortable. What makes a person begin to channel eloquent and opinionated spirits? I had to write this book to find out.
It is now available in paperback on Amazon.com.
I also like to support independent bookstores wherever possible, so here is my IndiBound Link!
