About this author

I'm also a blogger, reader, watercolorist and stray cats-helloer.

CarryUsOff Books is a small house where I write and produce children's books. I love a good story. I love art. A common trait that runs in my main characters: they're stronger than they thought they were. Come check out their stories!

Picture A moving non-fiction picture book.

"I was 13 years old when the German soldiers marched into town and killed poor Papa.

I was 14 when, in the middle of the night, they forced their way into our home and took my older brother Shmuel away.

I was 15 when the Nazis came for me. I didn't even have the chance to hug Mama and little Hirsh good-bye. It was the last time I would ever see them again."
