American Author, Artist, and Poet, Loretta Boyer McClellan sees the art of writing as an exciting medium and source of abundant joy in the creative process.  Her multilayered career as a writer of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry; conscious PR, brand, graphic design, and communications; and as an Arts instructor, journalist, and artist, “sized the canvas,” so to speak, for a fruitful life of expression.  Author of The Nature of BEing: A Healing Journey, The Misthaven of Maine Series, and Dodging Raindrops: Poems and Prose of Beauty, Peace and Healing, Lori creates and teaches from the heart.  Writing, meditating, and painting—particularly in watercolor—are her connection to the Infinite.

“As a Marriage and Family Therapist and as a person on my own personal journey, I enjoyed this memoir very much. This is an easy, but meaningful read. It is full of great resources and personal insights that can aid others in their journeys to wholeness. The author not only advocates self-compassion, but models it, as well. She clearly shows how her pain became a gateway to healing her whole being as she followed the path that opened up to her. I definitely think her work is an inspiration.” — Amazon Customer
