" ... A writer with a distinctive voice and an original worldview."
My fiction and essays appear in such anthologies as How Does That Make You Feel: True Confessions From Both Sides Of The Therapy Couch; The Oxford Book of Jewish Stories; Common Boundary: An Anthology About Immigration And International Adoption; and, Desire: Women Write About Wanting.
I've taught all over the world at universities and conferences. As a Writing Coach and Writing Workshop Leader, I remind my students to "Read, Read, Read. Read across the globe, across genre, gender, class, age, race, and sexuality, etc."
I also say: "Listen to your voice. Listen to the voices of others. Balance your intuitive self with your analytical self. Never forget to cherish your unique creative path; it will lead you to the "beating heart" that resides within your writing (and yourself)."
