Some of the worldview of Buddhism has subtly permeated my fictional writing. My short stories have been published in literary journals. Things Unsaid, my debut novel about family survival and heartbreak, was published October 2015 by She Writes Press. My second novel, a rom-com about online dating, is pending publication and I am currently working on my third, a romantic cozy mystery. I am not new to writing, however. I have written three nonfiction books on Buddhism while I was a professor at Stanford University, by American Academy of Religion Press, University of California Press, and Stanford University Press. Two have been translated into other languages. I have also written essays, book reviews, and movie reviews for www.womensmemoirs.com. In addition to writing fiction, I am a printmaker, specializing in woodblock and mixed media prints. My work has been exhibited in California, Hawaii, and Japan and has also been featured in the art journals Ascent Aspirations, Blood Lotus, 5 x 5, and Imitation Fruit.
