L. Donsky-Levine was born and raised in New York and where according to her mother, she was writing before she even walked, telling those stories with a twig in the dirt. But it would take a lifetime, her "Hello" letter from AARP and the raising of a family before that career as storyteller would come to fruition. In her trademark witty and wise fashion, she crafts stories crossing all genres, all emotional landscapes of the heart about characters dealing with all the things life could possibly throw their way. The Bad Girl is her debut novella. She currently lives in South Florida with her family.

I think every writer has their own arsenal of tricks they use to combat this oftentimes crippling, occupational disease. It usually happens when my story hits a wall. So I go back and re-read a few earlier pages with the hope of finding my way again. But if that fails, I simply step away from the computer (or put down my writing pad since I do the bulk of my initial writing the old way), and immerse myself in the everyday mundane things to distract myself. Wiping down the windows, vacuuming, cleaning out the fridge. You get the gist. After an hour of this, I'm usually good as new. Mojo back in place.(less)
L. Donsky-Levine Not having to get all dolled up, and sitting in my jammies all day. That's what I call the ideal job!

I recently turned sixty-five. Holy shit. Yeah, I know that’s a big ass number. The funny thing was up until the actual day I honestly believed I was only turning fifty-seven. But I dug out my passport and low and behold, I was born in 1953. I’m not sure it’s a denial thing why I seem to forget how old I am or simply wishful thinking. I do know though that like most people I’ve struggled ove...

“But to Fitz she’d always be invisible. An impossible task of face and body for which he had yet to conquer. And should he somehow manage to crack her open like rotten fruit on the vine, he’d only find decay and ugliness, from which she had to assume he’d run. Damaged goods were damaged goods.”
L. Donsky-Levine, The Bad Girl

“History teaches us that the events of the past shape our future. It begs us to not forget. To not wipe clean the memories. It tells us to use all that we know to honor our cultural differences and rectify those injustices in this great story of human existence. It provokes us to think. To act. To develop a better lens in which we see the world and keep us safe. It gives us meaning. It provides opportunity to build character and integrity in the lives of our children. And it teaches us the most important lesson of all … hope. For without that, there’s nothing.”
L. Donsky-Levine, The Bad Girl

“In the end, money is just money and all we truly have is each other. That, my dear, is the currency with which we should base our lives. Ja? A shoulder to lean on. A back to stand on. All the things I wish to be for you. If you will only let me.”
L. Donsky-Levine, The Bad Girl

“As a little girl, she remembered many nights just like this one. Taking these long, halcyon walks with her mother; sometimes stopping for ice cream or even a soda and afterward sitting together outside on the apartment stoop to further escape the unbearable heat of their apartment. The interesting thing was, life with her mother didn’t start out twisted. It just ended up that way.”
