Alice grew up in Old Town, Maine ("Heaven") and joined the army right out of high school at age
18. She was stationed at the Presidio of San Francisco at the height of the Vietnam War...major
culture shock. Her life experiences have led her to write her memoir (Ghost Child to
Triumph--from a child with no voice, to someone who speaks up against injustice), and of course her poetry book.
Endorsements for her memoir are: Dr. Larry Dossey, Dr. Frank M. Ochberg, Dr. Elaine Weiss,
Patricia Evans, Alice Miller, Clint van Zandt, Dr. Ellen Langer Dr. Tracy Kemble, Dr. Kim
Anderson, Jacqueline Castine, and a woman who wished to remain anonymous who gave the
most powerful comment: "She stopped me from committing suicide and gave me a reason to live."
Endorsements for her poetry: Elie Weisel, Wayne Dyer, Nikki Giovanni, Katherine Nuyens, Dr.
Elaine Weiss, Dr. Pamela Blair
She believes we are all here to make a difference, and is the moderator of an abused survivors' group.
She won a women's scholarship, because of what she has overcome in her life and is in school
at age 63. The premise of her memoir is that no matter what we have experienced, we do have
choices as adults, and can make some good decisions and choices for our lives.
Her first love is ballet. The two pictures are of her dance performance at Oakland University in February, 2010. The photo of the 2 people has Alice on the right hand side (in red).
I cannot be 63...there must be some mistake.
Without my faith, wicked wit and sense of humor, I might be drooling in a corner.
Her poetry reflects her journey, and she hopes that through her thoughts and feelings, you will find solace for your soul and the words will resonate with your spirit.
www.churchabusepoetrytherapy.com is her poetry, reflecting another journey.
