Writer. Author. Memoir Storyteller.



I have been storytelling since my earliest memory. I am a novelist, and I am also passionate about collaborating with people with fascinating life paths and writing their memoirs, while capturing their unique voices.

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 eight years before leaving to write full-time. 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. I currently live in Tel Aviv.

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