An Author, Writer/Editor and Publishing Advisor Whose Wake-Up Call Became a Calling to Help Others as a Wellness Advisor. Follow me …

I am a ghostwriter, as well as an author and editor, and many of my thousands of  followers know I write memoirs, but I have never written my own. I hid behind my words and songs and art until one day when I couldn’t hide anymore. It was an accident, a drug interaction,  a misdiagnosis by the doctors that refused to acknowledge it. At the time, I didn’t know or want to know that I died that day in the emergency room … for mere seconds? I’m not sure. Only my husband knows the full truth. I have been blessed because of my experience. I came back with a mission!

For the past 7 months, I’ve been researching, studying, training, updating certifications. I’ve turned to holistic healers and healthy snacks and shakes. I’ve lost some weight, not enough, but it’s made me feel a lot better. I’ve cut out over half of my prescription drugs with the horrible side effects.

I had already met people with auto-immune conditions because it’s in my Bio that I was diagnosed 28 years ago. I met even more on Facebook and Twitter, LinkedIn, at the doctor’s office, at a restaurant we go to; even when I was a patient in the hospital, I was teaching a RN about SLE Lupus because her BFF had just been diagnosed, and she was going to the beach to sunbathe … in Miami! Yikes! Neither one of them knew that sunshine makes SLE worse, life-threatening. It turns it on!

I’ve met many, many more people these past 7 months with SLE Lupus, Discoid Lupus, Juvenile Lupus, Geriatric Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Osteoarthritis,  MS, Depression, Autism, Encephalitis, Ischemic Stroke, Parkinson’s, ALS, Alzheimer’s, Dementia, on and on and on. But what was I supposed to do? I guess I’m the type that has to be hit in the head with a brick to see what’s right in front of my eyes. People need help, and our world is getting more toxic  everyday.

THE REST OF THE STORY: I prayed the night before on August 27, 2017, as I have before. I asked God to take me, to bring me home. I know now it was the prescription drugs talking and not my intention. I hurt; I was depressed; I was scared … but I ended my prayer as I always have for many, many years. No, not often, just a few desperate times when the pain was just too much to bear. “Please, bring me home, dear Lord. I’m ready …” Then I would take a deep breath and whisper, “But if you need me, God; if anyone needs me, I am Your vessel. Tell me where to go, when to go, who to see. I know when I get there, the words will be there because you always send them to me. So, even though, I’m ready… if you need me, I’m here, as always. Amen.”

I’m living stronger than ever because of the things I’ve learned and the research I’ve done in the months that followed my “wake-up call”. My body, mind, and spirit are working together for a change, even though I hit the big “65” in about a month. This is my personal story and educational journey, the one I never thought I’d write.

This website is not replacing, and I’m still writing, editing, advising people on publishing. I’ll never stop that; I love it! But this blog is the place to go if you want to share advice, suggestions, or want to hear about some of the things I’ve tried that have worked, actually helped me … a lot. Let’s connect on social media. There’s a big world out there that needs help from all of us. This is the company I’ve found that works  best for me.

There is an added value with the website above to be able to order products online with a money-back guarantee that can support multiple non-profits and global fundraising projects as well as make the world a better place in which to live.

Also, I will be offering online remote Reiki and Hypnotherapy, individually or in groups. Just fill out the CONTACT FORM. The relaxation, focus, and healing aspects of these ancient disciplines, which I have been involved with for three decades, were essential in my transformation. I had forgotten the advantages I learned and shared with others many years ago. I thought I was too busy to be involved in these life-changing, blessed remedies. Now I realize, everything is much clearer and projects are accomplished much quicker with more precision and creativity when the right energy is flowing through me.

As we look at our pets, we see the peace and tranquility we seek to find for ourselves. This is our Molly, 17 years old and as playful as a kitten. Yes, I have been blessed!

At this stage of my life I am a fiction author and poet, but I wear many hats! With a 30+-year history and education in editing and publishing, as well as psychology, I have introduced Clasid Consultants Publishing to help writers of all media produce a better product. I am a firm believer that the meticulous high quality of the "old-fashioned" way of publishing, which took months and even years, CAN be accomplished with the new rapidity of our techno/change-o world. All it takes is a little knowledge and keeping an eye on the ever-changing publishing market. I have reasonable fees for coaching/ghostwriting, editing/rewriting, proofreading, full publication layout-and-design, and act as a publishing advisor. My main concern is that the written material be accurate, consistent, beautiful to behold, and interesting to read. I willingly do no-charge reviews on short stories and novels, as I hope you will check out my fiction selections on and do a review for me. We all learn from each other, and our perceptions change and evolve with every life we touch. Let me know how I can assist you! I am an avid reader, musician (singer/piano/Celtic harp, guitar, sax), artist, and Advanced Clinical Psychological Hypnotherapist (A.C.P.H). I am an animal lover with a beautiful Turkish Angora Cat named Molly. I am an advocate and speaker for the Lupus Foundation (, Women's Rights, and "How Not To Be A Victim," as well as esoteric subjects dealing with hypnotherapy, psychic dreams and visions, telepathy, angels, and unexplained phenomena. Sadly, I was widowed in 2018.

    1. There’s been a lot of ups and down. I know that I’m a statistic that is miniscule. I am blessed to have lived to see my mid-60s. Most Lupus patients do not, but I’ve been blessed. There is much work for me to do yet on this earth. “Reflections and Nightmares”, such is life.
