A Season Among Psychics, her debut novel, focuses on fifty-year-old English professor Judith, and single mother to a son with autism who is struggling with depression and the feeling that her life is stalled.

When Judith meets Rosetta at a psychic fair, Rosetta suggests she take a psychic healing course, where Judith discovers the profound connection between teaching and healing.
