D.J. Kean
D.J. Kean is a retired licensed clinical social worker and psychotherapist who lives with her husband in Cambria, California. Throughout her life and career and for thirteen years as the Executive Director of Hospice of San Luis Obispo County, she’s had the privilege of being with individuals in key life transitions and extraordinary states of being who’ve inspired her work.
An avid dreamcatcher for over thirty years, the concept for
Clearview, a Metaphysical Mystery came through a dream and stalked her until she completed it. It tells the story of five dreamers in a remote mountain community who uncover historic past lives as they experience conflict, love and loss. The surrounding land is the home of the ancient Kinekwa tribe steeped in both history and tragedy. Ultimately they must unite to face catastrophic earth changes.
Ms. Kean’s writings have appeared locally in
Hope Dance and The New Times and she’s been awarded first place in ‘first page fiction’ at Cuesta College’s Writer’s Conference and third place in the pending Tall Grass Anthology publication.
