Druzelle Cederquist is author of The Story of Baha’u’llah: Promised One of All Religions. Her website Luminous Realities http://druzellecederquist.com/ features reader enrichments for the book – videos, photos, printable timelines, maps, and more – as well as a sampling of her published poetry and short essays. She has a B.A. in English Literature, an M.A. with concentration in Teaching English as a Second Language, and experience as a writing workshop leader.
The Story of Baha’u’llah is written as creative nonfiction to “bridge the gap between mind and heart, knowledge and insight.” She explains this relatively new genre in Creative Nonfiction: Breathing Life into a Body of Facts.
Her Creative Paradigm: Strategies, Practices, and Attitudes for a Creative Life features a visual model of practical principles drawn from arts, science, and the Baha’i Faith, which she wrote about in her blog Luminous Realities: Exploring the Creative Process and presented at the Association for Baha’i Studies conference on Religion and the Evolution of Consciousness.
Druzelle has been a Baha’i since 1972, and part of Baha’i community life in Indiana, Nigeria, New York, and now Austin, Texas. She and her husband have two grown sons and one delightful grandson! She is currently at work on the biography, “’Abdu’l-Baha and the Destiny of America,” a companion volume to The Story of Baha’u’llah.
