About Me

I wrote my first book, The Two Sisters, when I was a little kid; it was an illustrated tale about two sisters who just couldn’t get along and the way the brilliant, fun, worldly older sister showed the obnoxious, annoying, and inexplicably smelly little sister the light (shout-out to my younger sister. Love you!). Now I’m the author of DAMAGE DONE (out now!) and NEVER MISSING, NEVER FOUND, out in June 2016. I’m represented by Merrilee Heifetz of Writers House and she is the best ever.

I also do ghostwriting and work-for-hire in young adult fiction/non-fiction, middle grade fiction/non-fiction, and adult fiction. If you’re looking for a writer for a project, whether it’s your own or it’s IP, email me! I’d love to discuss.

When I’m not writing or reading, I’m usually trying out a new restaurant, trying out a new recipe, or thinking about food in some way, shape, or form, or else I’m out running or hiking. I also like to complain about how terrible it is to live in New York City, because I grew up in the New Jersey Pine Barrens where I was surrounded by trees and animals and now I’m surrounded by other people and concrete and garbage.

To make up for THE TWO SISTERS, I promised my sister I would give a public shout-out to her pet tortoise. Hi, Leo! Now we’re even.
