In the aftermath of 9/11, Priscilla co-authored the New York Times bestseller The Faith Club, a memoir about her interfaith relationship with two other New York mothers. After traveling across the country for three years, speaking to audiences in churches, synagogues, and mosques, she vowed to heal from the panic attacks that had plagued her for decades. Priscilla learned how to meditate and wrote about her adventures with Buddhist teachers, therapists and healers in another bestselling memoir, Learning to Breathe.
Priscilla lives outside of New York City where is working on her next book, and making art inspired by her childhood drawings.
Written with Priscilla’s lovely wit and humor, Learning to Breathe is a serious attempt to heal from a painful condition, and an inspiring guidebook for people similarly adrift or secretly fearful, facing daily challenges large and small, and longing for a sense of peace, self-acceptance and understanding.
