Rivvy Neshama is a writer, editor, and longtime community organizer, whose spiritual path draws from many sources: Eastern and Western religions, Native Traditions, Sufis and shamans, and her mom. Along the way, she earned a bachelor's degree in philosophy from Bryn Mawr College and master's degrees in comparative literature, social work, and education.

Despite her aversion to change, Rivvy has been a teacher and social worker in Harlem, a campaign manager in Boulder, a college instructor in Queens, and a Tarot card reader at Macy's on Halloween. She was the founding development director of the Colorado-based Intercambio-Uniting Communities. And as cofounder and first director of Transportation Alternatives, an advocacy group for better bicycling, walking, and mass transit in New York City, she was profiled in Ms. Magazine.

A lifelong writer, Rivvy was first published in Story Magazine's best college writing anthology, and has since written for many national publications, including Ms., Glamour, and The New York Times. She is the author of the children's book Nat Turner and the Virginia Slave Revolt.

Rivvy lives in Boulder, Colorado, and Sag Harbor, New York, with her husband, British author John Wilcockson.
