If you enjoy the ideas and sensibility here and on the Happiness Between Tails Podcast, you’ll love my novels once they’re published — “Flamenco and the Sitting Cat” and its sequel, “Tango and the Sitting Cat.” They’re my love letters to all who worry that they’re too odd or old, too damaged or young or whatever, to find happiness alone or with a partner.

Hi there! I’m da-AL, and since I learned to hold a pencil, I’ve been a writer. My journalism awards include an Emmy (click here for more about that and the video) and various cable TV ones. An earlier video was nominated for an Emmy.
One of my short stories was printed in Verdad. Twice I’ve been granted the honor of attending Literary Women Festival of Authors as an “Emerging Author.” Some of my visual artist was featured in “New Directions in Altered Books,” by Gabe Cyr and California State Long Beach’s literary journal, Rip Rap.

Childhood was nomadic, ranging from cities in Spain, to ones across the United States. Throughout, I cherished writing to my grandmothers in Buenos Aires and Barcelona, as well as the friends I left behind.
My Iranian-American husband and I share a passion for world dance, cuisine, music, travel, animals, and literature. My dear lab-mix doggie, with either a toy in her mouth or her chin on my knee, rescues me from brooding over commas for too long.
I do my best to publish something new weekly. Your comments are important to me, so if I haven’t replied to you within a week, please know it was surely an oversight.

Un petit message pour te souhaiter une bonne journée
Pour te mettre dans la bonne humeur
Allez réveille-toi si tu ne l’es encore pas
En ce jour est l’espoir que quelque chose de merveilleux se produira
Que ta journée soit belle est ensoleillée
Bise Amicale Bernard
