I wrote my first book, Wollack the Witch, at age 7. Needless to say, this book is exactly what one would expect from a second grader. All 20 pages were little more than an anthology of girls names from the 80s...(i.e.: Wollack met Ashley! Wollack then met Brittany! Wollack then met Courtney!) but it was a start.
I went to college in the mid-90s and there I wrote my second book. I had always thought of Universities as a petri dish for revolution and social change. At the time, UVA was brimming with tailgates, football games, Greek life and social clubs...basically everyone else's vision of college. So, instead of adapting to my environment like most students, I holed up in the library and wrote an 800-page political satire about our nation's obsession with political scandal. Amazingly, I found an agent for this book but she wasn't able to sell it to any publishers.
Fast forward twenty years and this brings us to today. Now a mother of 3 boys and a former Wall Street exec, I have written a third book about a family that disappears. The subtext involves parenting a child with dyslexia -- a topic I know quite a bit about as you'll see in my blog.
I hope you like All the Hidden Pieces, coming out in 2018.
