About Me

DSC_0190 - Version 3I am a writer and photographer. I write adult fiction about characters at the crossroads in their lives and the relationships they forge along the way. My stories are influenced by my passion for culinary art, painting, photography, dance, and music.

After I received my masters at Columbia University, I taught at a private high school and for Cornell University Cooperative Extension in New York City. Once I moved to Oregon, I dedicated my time to homeschooling my children through high school.

My husband and I currently live in Portland, a place overflowing with restaurants, Argentine Tango, and writers. It’s hard to live in a place like Portland and not be inspired to create. Now that my children have moved on with their lives, writing and photography have become my full-time jobs. I am also the Vice President for Willamette Writers, the largest writing organization in the Pacific NorthWest. My short story “Asmodai in Portland” was published by Reclaiming Judaism Press in the anthology New Mitzvah Stories for the Whole Family in the fall of 2014.
