Born in Salt Lake City, Utah. I moved to Berkeley at ten, majored in music at Cal, married Gus, had four children and taught piano lessons. Now I write books and draw cartoons on personality. First was "The Enneagram Made Easy", then "Are You My Type, Am I Yours?" Then I wrote "The Enneagram of Parenting", "Finding the Birthday Cake" (a book for teaching the Enneagram to children), "The Happy Introvert", "The Career Within You" with Ingrid Stabb, "The Enneagram of Death", and "The Enneagram for Teens". Don't forget the "Beethoven Enneagram" CD, where I play parts of his piano sonatas with narration about his personality. I love my kids and grandkids and husband. I'm always curious about something - a 5 in the Enneagram, INFP in the MBTI.
