About the Author


I’ve done archeology in France, dogsledding in Minnesota and woodworking in my own garage, but what I love best is writing. In addition to Even You and Rivka’s War, I’m the author of the novel Playing for Keeps, the blog “Streets of Israel” and some short stories and guidebooks.  I’m a recipient of the University of Michigan’s Avery Hopwood Prize for excellence in writing.

I live in New York’s Hudson Valley and on Long Island. A Ph.D. in language and literature, I have taught English, history and Judaics, and I’ve raised funds for arts, environmental and community organizations.

I love reading 19th century fiction, 17th century poetry and just about anything else that’s well written. I’ve been devouring books about World War I for decades.
