Background

I began studying Astrology in 1973 after encountering a book, The Astrology of Personality, written by a Frenchman, Dane Rudyhar. This book had such an impact on me that I decided very quickly that Astrology was going to be my field of expertise. I studied diligently for several years, and did charts for free to obtain some experience in 1974. Between 1976 and 1978, I gradually built up a large and faithful practice. Over the years, I have expanded to take on writing, lecturing, teaching and now have clients from all over the world.

I had the good fortune in 1984 to receive my first book contract, from ACS Publications in San Diego, California, to write Astrological Games People Play. It was exciting to get an opportunity to reach people outside of my own area. The book was released in 1987. I had more good fortune in the early 1990's when ACS agreed to publish my second book, RoadMap To Your Future, a thorough discussion of predictive Astrology, focusing on Secondary Progressions and Transits. This book was released in 1994. RoadMap is soon to be reprinted for the third time by a new publisher, The American Federation of Astrologers. To the many wonderful people anxious to get their hands on this book, I will announce the release date!

My good luck has continued. I signed a contract in February, 1999 to write my third book, SignMates, to be published by Llewellyn. It is due for publication in the year 2000. This book covers all of the possible sign comparisons to help individuals find ways to fulfill their relationship needs. The book has been written for the general public in order to reach the widest audience possible.

I have written the text for three software programs. These are the Skyscope Birthchart Report, the Prediction Report, and Simpaticos which is a written report that discusses a romantic or non-romantic partnership.

I continue to accept invitations to lecture at Astrology conferences. I teach classes when time permits. My main focus of late has been to train individuals to become Astrologers.

My work is based on a humanistic and person-centered approach. I see Astrology as a wonderful blueprint in assisting individuals to more clearly define their life choices.

I am committed to my Astrological practice. I do consultations from my office in Durham, NC, face-to-face, or by telephone. I send taped readings to people all over the U.S. and the world. My schedule can be hectic with writing, counseling and traveling-- I remain passionate about my practice of astrology and its many uses for my clients!
