My novel The Silver Baron's Wife launched September 2016 as a #1 New Release Bestseller in Biographical Fiction on Amazon. It was a Bronze Winner in ForeWord Reviews Best Book of the Year, a Will Rogers Medallion Award and Paterson Prize for Fiction Finalist, and more. An early draft of this novel won the PEN/New England Discovery Award for Unpublished Fiction. I am also the author of the short story collection Sympathetic People (Iowa Fiction Award Finalist and 2015 IndieBook Awards Finalist), Sometimes You Sense the Difference (a 2012 poetry chapbook from Finishing Line Press). I also founded and publish a multi-faith literary journal called Tiferet Journal.

My stories and poems have appeared in Virginia Quarterly Review, Confrontation, P

Her story fascinated me--its contrasts between materialism and spirituality, family and loneliness, poverty and wealth. To my mind, she was a very complex woman. It bothered me that some earlier representations limited her to the role of mistress and wife.
I kept writing because on some level, I had to :) I couldn't let her story go. The novel went through many revisions. I'd put it aside for a while then pull it out again.
Thank you for asking :) (less)
