I have decided to change my pen name to Elizabeth M. Herrera. I can’t give you a definitive reason, other than it feels right at this time. I love the practice of shamanism, and felt proud to use the title “Shaman” in my pen name—it was a gift from the spirits that I honored. But I’ve come to realize that I can accept this gift without an outward display.
Using my real name seems more raw. More open. Less focused on a specific modality and more focused on an individual path where I simply listen to my heart.
I plan to write more books—as usual with either an overt or subtle spiritual theme. I hope you join me on this journey. It’s a lot more interesting when we do it together.
