I'm a writer and producer, and my fiction and nonfiction have been published in Salon, Guernica, and Time Out New York, among other places, and anthologized in Before and After: Stories from New York and Lost and Found. I've been awarded fellowships in fiction by the Edward Albee Foundation, Jentel, the Millay Colony, Fundacion Valparaiso, the Constance Saltonstall Foundation, and the American Antiquarian Society in Worcester, MA.

I've also worked as a fact-checker, a script doctor, and a copy writer. Basically, if it's in English, and it has a beginning, a middle, and an end, someone has paid me to write it. I live in Brooklyn with my husband and two young daughters. The Movement of Stars is my first novel.

“If epigenetic changes caused by trauma such as the Holocaust, or enslavement, can be passed through generations, as researchers have recently found, perhaps some of us are hard-wired to be afraid because our history has taught us that fear is a kind of armor.”
