I love astrology and I love writing and teaching, a combination that seemed to take on a life of its own. It was when I was doing handwritten natal reports for colleagues and friends I met through my job in the late 70’s and early 80’s that I realized how much I enjoyed writing about astrology. A few years later, I wondered about writing an article for a magazine so I drew up my first serious Horary chart to ask if I might be successful. The chart gave an affirmative answer so I wrote an article about rising signs and submitted it to American Astrology magazine. You can just imagine my excitement when I got an acceptance letter only three months after my Horary inquiry! Writing articles for periodicals and magazines was excellent practice for compiling larger book projects. I just focus on topics I feel experienced in, where I might pass along instructional information that will help other astrologers.

My first book was written to be the kind of book I wished I’d had access to early in my own studies, with all of the essentials for prediction in one book. I wanted to make it easier for other astrology students than it had been for me. When I was learning, there was a little bit of useful info here and a little bit there, but it took a very long time to pull it all together.
Reader response was very positive and the book quickly sold out. For a while the cost of a used copy was sky high. Popular demand led to this new revised, expanded edition!
