First and foremost, I am a Catholic convert. Before I became Catholic, I took just about every other spiritual/philosophical ideology out for a test drive; they all left me wanting something I couldn’t quite put my finger on. Well, it put the finger on me after my first Tridentine Mass. The story of my journey from being San Francisco’s #1 rated “elite” call girl into the Catholic Church can be read in Patrick Madrid’s book Surprised By Life–I used the pen name AnneMarie Schreiber for that project.

These days, I spend my time writing; sewing liturgical garments and linens, children’s garments, and vintage reproductions; reading; and watching old movies.

The name of my blog is a reference to Hosea 8:7: “For they shall sow wind, and reap a whirlwind…” This ol’ world has been sowing wind for an awfully long time – it seems to me that our current culture may very well be the whirlwind harvest.

I live and work in the breathtakingly beautiful San Francisco Bay Area, and feel very blessed to do so.
