Welcome to my author website and blog where I muse about the 4 Ps: Publishing, Perfectionism, Productivity, and Parenting.

Can you see how they’re all related?

Join me in the discussion on how to get more done, let go of being perfect, raise wonderful kids, and live the writing life.  Along the way, I’ll share books, advise, and lessons I’ve learned.

A little about me:

I write short stories, essays , and creative nonfiction. My debut YA novelOne Is Not A Lonely Number, was a 2011 Sydney Taylor Honor Book from the Association of Jewish Libraries and a 2011 Next Generation Indie Finalist.

I consider myself a job juggler and recovering  perfectionist.  I divide my time among writing, entering competitions, homeschooling my teen daughter,  and working as an educational consultant.

I grew up in Detroit and am graduate of New York University and Harvard School of Education.  Today my home is Massachusetts, though I hope to move somewhere tropical one day.
