Yay! My LSD book is finished, though not yet published

Last Update: November 07, 2019

It took me over a year, longer than I expected, but I now have a proof copy of my third memoir sitting here right beside my laptop. It's in a spot my cat likes, but this chilly morning she prefers the heater vent. Here is the front cover, with a photo of me from that era.

In a nutshell, right after I graduated from Stanford, I was a research subject in a study of the effects of LSD on normal people. My family paid for this as my graduation gift, $500 in 1964 dollars. Laugh if you will but it turned out to be one of the greatest blessings if not THE greatest of my life. I had been raised by an atheist mother on the one hand and an Episcopalian father and stepmother on the other. I tended toward my mother's thinking but on LSD I met spiritual realities that changed everything and brought me to a far more joyous approach which has generally lasted over half a century. (I'm 77 now.)

Before I Publish the Book...

My website where I describe and publish bits of my books already exists and I moved it here to WA. You can find it from the list of my sites on my profile -- it's the one that starts with Z, or knowing that you can guess it from seeing the name on the book cover.

I have got to get an email list set up on that site. Really I should have done that before writing this post but I'm just so excited that I didn't want to wait.

Tra la! ta da!

Thanks, Heidi! Yes, I've had quite an unusual life. My next book will be about being the daughter of a science fiction writer, and the one I'm really looking forward to after that has the working title of "I Fell in Love with a Hippie." Now approaching 50 years later, we are still together and (usually) still in love.

I see you've done books too! I rarely read fiction but they look interesting in their genres.
