I wrote Cupid on Trial – What We Learn About Love When Loving Gets Tough to share my vision of what it means to love and be loved in our modern, contemporary world—including what it means to love yourself. It’s a unique book of inspiration, insight, and romance, written in simple story form and easy to understand

I have been teaching about intimacy, researching relationships, and counseling couples for many years. I view love as a form of power, a natural force encoded in our genes. It’s dynamic and ever-changing; it flows within us, between us, and around us. It moves, drives, transforms, bonds, collides, and even repels at times. I don’t buy the old-fashioned idea that a relationship is about finding the right person and settling down to hibernate; instead, love involves making choices every day about how to manage the power you already have.
