Her fiction and biography have been published by HarperCollins Children’s Books, American Psychological Association/Magination Press, Pen Women Press, Psychological Perspectives and Women & Recovery. Collections of myths, legends, folktales and biblical stories appear through Black Dog & Leventhal/Workman.
