Growing up, I wanted to be the next Erma Bombeck, only Jewish. Fortunately, I kept my day job in health care public relations as I wrote humor pieces at night. I’ve kept that love of writing ever since. I’ve published three award-winning humor books, a memoir, The Skeptic and the Rabbi: Falling in Love with Faith, and co-authored a book on MBA admissions strategies. My memoir is truly a work of my heart, and I’ve been so pleased by the fantastic reader reactions it receives. There is also a fabulous audiobook version as well as softcover and e-book versions.
In addition to my books, my columns and features have appeared in the Wall Street Journal, Chicago Tribune, Boston Globe, Christian Science Monitor, Los Angeles Times, Saturday Evening Post, Orange County Register, Jewish Journal, Jewish Action, Aish.com, Ladies Home Journal, Woman’s Day, Family Circle, Northwestern, and many other media outlets. If you’d like to see some of my work at a glance, check out a partial portfolio on Contently.
I published my first fiction story, “The Inheritance”, about a couple in conflict over religious observance, and look forward to exploring more themes within fiction over time. I’m also working as a non-fiction ghostwriter, developmental editor, and writing coach. Helping people tell their stories in their own voices, with clarity and impact is something I love to do. More recently, I have begun giving occasional memoir and essay writing workshops.
I’m a member of the Authors Guild, the Editorial Freelancers Association, and ACES — the Society for Editing.
