Thank you to my readers who have supported my satirical and historical fiction. I enjoy writing stories you want to read about--feisty women, passionate men, precarious time periods, quests for survival and intriguing emotional relationships, all done with a dash of humor. Laughter is healing. Most of us welcome a respite from the tragedies that unfold daily.

Family stories haunt me. PAPER CHILDREN--An Immigrant's Legacy tells a true tale within a novel about my grandparents. But for one aching decision I wouldn't be here, nor would the generations after me. Do you know who came before you? What have they passed on? I see life as a continuum of all our narratives. It's not just locations and physicality; it's the deep parts of us that react with inner knowing.

Recent success with THE BLIND EYE--A Sephardic Journey as the 2015 adult choice for ONEBOOKAZ has shown me others want to learn about a courageous people who survived exile and persecution for centuries. The history of a culture teaches us lessons of what the consequences are for intolerance. So many times they parallel current events. Once again, I focus on a family who make decisions that change the fate of others for many years.

Recent publication includes PARIS LAMB, another exploration on how family secrets can harm even when we think they help. This novel explores an intense relationship between a son and his mother. Academia, an art auction and a Miami lifestyle in the 1950s led me to a gripping ride through the desegregated South, prejudices and the role of women.

Currently I am working on HIDDEN ONES; A Veil of Memories that takes place in 1790s Mexico. Events force the Guzman family to make painful decisions when loved ones encounter the force of the Inquisition. The research for this novel and THE BLIND EYE have catapulted me to present a paper to The Society of Crypto-Judaic Studies. Even professors like to read novels!

My goal is to continue learning and sharing motivational family stories, especially with new scientific information about genetic memory and the stain trauma leaves behind for us. Whose stories might resonate with you?

As the only child of New York expatriates who embraced a Bohemian lifestyle, I grew up in South Florida with a book as my best friend. I love the written word. I have stories to tell.
