I love the written word, creative expression, travel -- and most of all -- the noblest possibilities in the human heart. I'm always curious to discover how history, culture, relationship, spirituality and the natural world influence us and point the way for our human family on its shared journey.

I've worked as writer, editor, nurse, tour guide, program director at a Baha’i conference center, taught English to kindergartners in China, and served as instructor for the Long Ridge Writer’s Group. I've written for dozens of magazines, including Christian Science Monitor, Ms., and Writer’s Digest, and worked as editor for several publications.

My nonfiction books explore how to create balance between the spiritual and material requirements of our

That created the irresistible pull that drew me through the story. With my latest novel, hopefully releasing in 2015, I wanted to understand more about the civilian experience of WWII, and especially that of Germany. This is likely because Germany was my childhood home, and also because the war in Europe is a part of my parents' history, and is where they met.

The spiritual nature has a value system that places priceless relationships above any object or hoped-for outcome.


But the human nature, if left in charge, does not.


The sign that we’re in a situation that requires a shift from the eyes of our human nature to the vision of our spiritual one is when we find ourselves focusing on the imperf

“Exiting onto the street, I heard a chorus of bells from three churches, then saw the blood-red banners with their dark Swastikas everywhere I turned. I'm accustomed to this in Berlin, but seeing them on these lovely old façades is like finding graffiti scrawled on my grandmother's house. The Nazis are relentless with this display, like dogs marking territory.”
Phyllis Edgerly Ring, The Munich Girl

“Most of the women correspondents couldn't make a marriage last. We'd tasted too much of life on our own terms and you didn't find men who could manage with that.”
Phyllis Edgerly Ring, The Munich Girl

“It seemed wrong that flowers could bloom, the world be so beautiful, after so much destruction.”
Phyllis Edgerly Ring, The Munich Girl
