NEW BOOK – JAN. 2020:
My new book 999 - The Extraordinary Young Women of the First Official Jewish Transport to Auschwitz brings together stories of girls on the first transport along with historic research that will astound new fans and former fans of Rena's Promise.
999 places the young women of the first transport front and center in Holocaust history and women's history, and I am hugely excited about the reception it is already having—you will meet Edith, who is very much like, Rena (vivacious, generous and compassionate) and who is still alive today, at 95! My new BFF. You can find her virtual 95th birthday party on our Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/999themovie/

You can also find my Vlog on the Rena's Promise YouTube Channel

I should have been a tree sitter. I love the structure of this book. Very subtle, like a root system, and then you climb higher into the story. Truly captivating!
