When We Were Young is coming out February 16, 2021—but you can pre-order it today!


I have a BA in Economics from the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor and a JD from NYU School of Law. I practiced estate planning law at Sidley Austin LLP in Chicago for seven years before leaving my job to travel the world and write novels. After culling my possessions into only what would fit in a backpack, I traveled for over a year until settling in Tel Aviv, where I can often be found writing from cafés near the beach. 


My debut novel will be published by Hachette/Grand Central in February 2021. I teach workshops worldwide on memoir and fiction writing and the ins and outs of the publishing industry. I am represented by Rachel Ekstrom Courage of Folio Literary Management. 


Read on to learn more about my work as a novelist and feel free to contact me. I’d love to hear from you.
