Hey, there! Thanks for stopping by. I'm a speculative fiction writer. My stories usually include Jewish characters like me, whose spiritual beliefs are more mystical than mainstream. I'm Co-Director of the #SquamWrites retreat, a current mentee in Donald Maass and Lorin Oberweger's Story Lab, and a 2017 Pitch Wars Mentee.

Before becoming a full-time writer, I was an in-house attorney for a consulting business. I also practiced immigration law, defending immigrants in deportation proceedings. In undergraduate school, I studied Latin American Literature and Fine Arts. I'm also a certified energy healer and Usui Reiki Master.

Some of my favorite things include listening to audiobooks at twice/thrice their normal speed, binge-watching foreign dramas, sketching with soft lead pencils, sipping iced coffee, and watching pollen-drunk bumblebees in my organic garden. I write by moonlight, draw sigils on my skin, and reside in an enchanted forest town outside of Boston.
