Author Bio

Fayegail Mandell Bisaccia is the author of Dancing in My Mother’s Slippers: A Journey of Grief and Healing and Circles: Prayers for the End of Life, as well as stories and essays. Fayegail’s writings about death and dying, grief and healing are uplifting, moving, insightful, and sometimes humorous. Her work is infused with her deeply-held values of mindfulness and community. 

Fayegail facilitates a weekly drop-in grief support group called Loss and Mindfulness, and she serves as Assistant to the Rabbi at her local synagogue. Her work often enables her to be with people who are ill, dying, or bereaved.

She currently lives in Ashland, Oregon, with her husband, Lance, and their cat, Maya, both of whom appear prominently in Dancing.
