“Art is transferring feeling from one heart to another.” ~ Leo Tolstoy
I write fiction, essays, and memoir.
I’m passionate about story-telling, nontraditional learning, ballet, space travel, and the months June, July, and August. Entering contests gives me an adrenaline rush.
I grew up in Michigan. Today my home is Massachusetts, though I hope to move somewhere tropical one day. Sunlight makes me joyful. I’m allergic to snow.
My blog explores creativity, grief, resilience, and the writing life.
You can read samples of my published work here. My debut middle-grade novel, One Is Not A Lonely Number, was a 2011 Sydney Taylor Honor Book from the Association of Jewish Libraries, a 2011 Next Generation Indie Finalist, and a PJ Library Our Way pick.
I’m now working on a second Middle-grade novel set in the summer of 1968.
I love connecting with my readers and meeting kindred spirits. Please stop by and say hello.
