I received my Ph.D. from Yale University in Spanish Literature and Language. I am currently a professor a Southern California college. My current area of research and interest is survival of consciousness research. I live with an eccentric husband, an amazing daughter, an emotionally deranged green-cheeked conure, two cats and an assortment of other creatures. I am a founder of a paranormal research and investigation team--THE PARANORMAL HOUSEWIVES--who has been (as of this writing) featured on two major television shows and are the subject of an original Lifetime series produced by Julia Roberts. Ah, there is so much more . . . but shall we leave something to the imagination?
