I’m a native New Yorker, who, by transplanting to the New Jersey suburbs, conceived my first novel, THE MEMORY BOX, a New York Times and USA Today Bestselling psychological thriller about a woman who Googles herself and discovers the shocking details of a past she doesn’t remember—set in a fictional upscale suburb where things appear to be quite ordinary. It is available in paperback, ebook and audiobook worldwide online and at a bookstore near you.
Misconceptions provide particular fascination for me−when people appear to be normal because of their context but upon closer inspection are actually deviant, or at the very least a little screwy. Incongruity carries over into my second novel, currently in progress. More on that later. Another theme that weaves its way through my fiction is the subject of control. How people obsessed with control will do kooky things in order to attain it. And by kooky, I mean, psycho.
That’s my fiction. My blog is dedicated (mostly) to everything non-fiction, sort of. A combination of humor and satire, oddball musings and the occasional poem. Some parts may contain baloney.
What else do you want to know? I eat every day (I love food!), I hate to exercise but should start to wrap my mind around that since my metabolism is no longer my best friend like it was in my twenties when I was addicted to Dove Ice Cream bars and would eat them every day for lunch. I’m an obstinate and oft times regretful do-it-yourselfer, I’m okay with my ears and my sternum, and I make up songs all the time as a way to dialogue with my kids. They find it infrequently entertaining.
As for finding me elsewhere, my essays appear on The Huffington Post, New Jersey Monthly, The Mid, Sammiches and Psych Meds, the Parental Guidance blog on nj.com, anthologized in Not Your Mother’s Book . . . On Being A Mom and elsewhere.
I’m so appreciative to my readers. Thank you for stopping by to read something that has struck your fancy. I am also grateful to readers of THE MEMORY BOX and want to thank each and every one of you who has taken the time to write a review which takes time and effort, and I thank you for that. Also, many of you have reached out via Goodreads or here, with questions or comments. It’s always wonderful to hear from you!
