Talk about world peace.

Here’s the video about why I’m rising.

I was honored to be a part of an hour-long conversation on KQED’s Forum with host Michael Krasney on December 6, 2012 about the power of positive female connection, along with the editor of the anthology Nothing But the Truth So Help Me God: 51 Women Reveal the Power of Positive Female Connection, Christine Bronstein, and fellow contributor, Shasta Nelson.  Shasta is the Founder/CEO of GirlfriendCircles.com.

I’m very honored to have my essay – “My Abortion Brought Us Together” – included in the anthology, Nothing But the Truth So Help Me God: 51 Women Reveal the Power of Positive Female Connection.

The book is the brain-child of Christine Bronstein, founder of A Band of Wives, and an all-around top-notch person.  She believes in the power of women’s voices and she practices what she preaches.  This book is just one example of how she makes her personal mission real in all of our lives. She also knows a thing or two about book-selling and its future, which I find especially exciting.

I had a great time at the book launch with Christine, and Chief Wife of ABOW, Leila Radan last month too, as you can see from the photo below.


Nothing But the Truth has received a bunch of accolades.  You can buy it on Indie-Bound or Book Passage, plus Amazon and Barnes and Noble, of course.

Teen Vogue calls it one of 16 Great Reads!
