I am a lifelong bibliophile, and cinefile. I appreciate a good gin and tonic and love Middle Eastern food which is pretty great, since that's where I live.
I have been published in the Jewish Journal, the Huffington Post, Script Magazine, the NY Post, Moment Magazine, The Times of Israel, Sanskrit Literary Journal and Hip Mama Magazine among others.
In addition to being a writer, I am a developmental and substantive editor so I'm lucky to be immersed in stories every day. A devoted lap swimmer, I also love to work with textiles. I am from California but now live in Tel Aviv. I've been working on a memoir about making the move from Hollywood to Israel called They Do Things Differently Here but got waylaid by a much more important book project, The True Adventures of Gidon Lev.
A few favorite writers are: Janet Frame, Virginia Woolf, Anne Lamott, Richard Yates, Yossi Klein Halevi, Etgar Keret, Bill Bryson, Sayed Kashua, Ann Patchett, Yuval Noah Harari, Mark McConnell, Malcolm Gladwell - and - well, I could go on and on. Follow me on GoodReads.
