Writer by calling, editor by experience, biologist by training, and mother by the seat of my pants.

Like the protagonist of my first novel, I have wandered.

I enjoyed an idyllic childhood in the provincial county of Brooklyn: listening to the sound of the el train screeching past our windows; at night exiting through gates that guarded my parents’ hardware store (we lived in the apartment above); in the morning strategizing on how to avoid the high school girls who would shake me down for money on my way to school.

It was in those early years that three themes emerged: a love for nonurban landscapes; a sense of the transitory nature of experiences; and a love of the intimate world between writer and reader.
