My Story

Like many people, I mapped out my future path as a child. At age ten I decided I was going to become a lawyer and do my part to change the world. I am a baby boomer so my idealism fits the ethos of the era.  I never lost the idea that things could change for the better, but while in law school I realized it wasn’t what I thought it would be. I tell more of my story in my new book Spiritual Writing from Inspiration to Publication of how I went from being a lawyer to a spiritual teacher, but one of the reasons I went into writing was I had started writing reviews as a sideline to keep my sanity in law school. I eventually did a dual degree in law and journalism and after a few years of practicing law decided writing was my path. I had plenty of signs pointing in the direction and thankfully I followed them.

Personal Life

As you can see from this photo, I love animals. I am known to some people as Debbie Doolittle for my ability to telepathically communicate with them. I am not sure how I do it and I am pretty certain the animals are not speaking English, but my mind translates it so I can understand their thoughts. This photo is of my dog, Isaac, who is now over a year old. We share our home with my husband, literary agent Jeff Herman, Hippy, a long haired doxie, Febe (she came from Mississippi on a transport and that is how they spelled her name so don’t make fun) a mixed breed who looks like something out of Dr. Seuss, and two cats. Kugel is the mother and her baby is Ketzela. I also have a wonderul horse named Red who lives on a farm. He is not a riding horse but rather a jovial large dog who has definite healing properties. I live in the Berkshires of Massachusetts where Norman Rockwell did his painting and feel very blessed to be surrounded by Nature’s beauty. I am the mother of three grown children and have one grandson who is the center of the universe.
