A mother A wife A writer A thinker Trying to be the change I want to see in the world
Well, that just about sums it up, wouldn't you say?
If you're looking for inspiration, connection, or to find out a little bit about me and my work, step right inside.
I'm a freelance writer, best known for my wide-ranging articles and my fictional serialized stories published in Mishpacha Jewish Family Weekly and Ami Magazine. You can also see some of my work on the award-winning Jewish website, www.aish.com. Some people say write what you know. I write what I am. I'm genuine. Real. Diverse. Okay, maybe a little quirky :-). If you met me you'd see I'm an ordinary person blessed with a really cool job.
Oh, and I just turned 40. I think that's crazy! I crafted my first novel right after we celebrated the birth of our first baby, because there wasn't much else to do during those long, cold Jerusalem winter nights other than feverishly write Breaking Point, right? :-) Now, twenty years later, thank God, I'm releasing my eleventh bookin the Fall. You do the math.
If you're one of the hundreds of thousands of readers who regularly sample my work, I thank you. If it weren't for you, I'd be out a job--and probably in plenty of trouble :-).
I love spending time with my family. I love bird-watching and playing classical piano. I love reading, although I'm a hopeless critic.
I hate artificial food coloring and deadlines. Um, did I just say deadlines? Maybe "hate" is too strong a word, if my editor is reading this.
People who know me say they hear my voice when they read my work. I like that. It means I'm staying true to myself as I write. Most days, I'm pretty happy being myself. Besides, everyone else is taken.
