The Authors

Kooch N. Daniels has given many thousands of readings for private clients and corporate events.  For some time she hosted the Tarot radio program Kozmik Koffee With Kooch, doing interviews with many remarkable people. Besides authoring several Tarot books, she does all kinds of readings, from in-depth sessions with querents who have been seeing her for years to one-card, three-minute readings when the occasion calls for it. She has been a keynote speaker at the Reader’s Studio Tarot Conference in New York City, and also at the Reader’s Studio Tarot and Psychology Conference that often precedes it. She also has presented at such venues as the Bay Area Tarot Symposium (BATS), the Northwest Tarot Symposium, International Gestalt conferences, college classrooms, and many other venues. Her business world clients include many Fortune 500 companies, especially high-tech firms in the San Francisco Bay region, and numerous wineries in the greater Bay Area.
