About Joanna

I’m a storyteller. And a Fantastic Cook!

What exactly does a professional writer do? In my case, I tell stories.

I’ve told stories about school boards and quirky townsfolk for a local newspaper, stories about events and ground-breaking research at a large university for its news department, and stories about the difference your gifts make to the people helped by non-profit organizations.

Those stories have been in print, in emails and e-newsletters, on websites, in videos and even in songs. They tie us together, connect us with our humanity, and help us understand who we are and what we’re all about.

Today, I tell stories for business and non-profit organizations through my business, Alight Communication. I also write stories freelance for newspapers and magazines, am working on a memoir and just write for pleasure on my blog.

I’ve lived in a lot of interesting places — I was born in England, lived in Barbados for a few formative years, and in the U.S. have made homes in Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina and upstate New York. I now live in Eugene, Oregon, with my husband and our blended family of 4 children in a lovely house with lots of bathrooms.

I’m an ordained minister through the National Spiritualist Association of Churches and a Certified Medium. When I’m not cooking a delicious dinner, I enjoy gardening, knitting, spinning yarn and playing music.

Developing your intuitive, psychic and mediumship abilities takes time and practice. It also takes a good deal of knowledge. When I first began developing mediumship, I took a class at the church I attended to get the basics, and then I spent a lot of time sitting in meditation, either by myself, du

7 tips for staying grounded in uncertain times

For anyone who’s sensitive — to energy, to emotions, to the vibe of the world — these last few months have been pretty rough. When you’re an empath and you absorb the energy and emotions of the people around you, it can be easy to get swept away in a tide of feeling, or feel static-y and u
