O Mother Sun: A New View of the Cosmic Feminine examines sun-goddess myths from around the world; Working Wisdom is a book on the application of spiritual teachings to the workplace. ''Winterburning'', Monaghan's first book of poems, is set in her native Alaska; ''Seasons of the Witch'' is a cycle of poems comparing a woman's life to the seasons of the year. She lectures widely on women and spirituality. Monaghan teaches at DePaul University's School for New Learning.
