Some of the worldview of Buddhism has subtly permeated my fictional writing. My short stories have been published in literary journals and I am now completing my first novel, Unhealed Wound. 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.
