About the author (2002)

Born in China and raised in Japan by missionary parents, Gail Fairfield was encouraged to discover her own answers to life's questions. She was drawn to the tarot in 1973, and it has allowed her to combine her background in psychology and her practical experience as a teacher with her intuition to create the choice-centered view of life that she introduces here. Fairfield currently lives in Bloomington, Indiana.
