Charlotte Maya

writer, speaker and seeker

I earned my Juris Doctor from UCLA and practiced law in the area of estate planning and settlement, drafting Wills and other estate planning documents, advising client regarding trust administration, and settling probates. My expertise on life’s transitions, however, comes through my personal experience, having been widowed suddenly when my husband took his own life. I speak from an insider’s perspective as the mother (and now step-mother) to four young boys (now young men) facing the loss of a parent and doing so with tears, insight and humor. I started the blog Sushi Tuesdays in an effort to bring hope and healing to others. I live in California with my husband, our beloved defective hunting dog, and no actual white picket fence, but two very tall pine trees.

Where to find me…
