Children of Lies

Rachel, a pre-med student from a Jewish family, doesn't think much about Israel until she meets Michael, a Palestinian doctor in New York on a fellowship, and the leader of a group supporting the uprising. She is attracted to his strength and passion for helping his people. He sees her as a recruit to his cause. Drawn together by their differences, their unlikely romance will force them to confront pre-existing loyalties, and to uncover truths buried under a lifetime of lies. Children of Lies is the story of two people in love, trapped in a political maelstrom, and a suspenseful and thought-provoking thriller set in NYC and Israel. Published 2017 by On the Edge Books.

A Suitable Husband

In 1930s Poland, the economy is crumbling, the government is in chaos, and Jewish groups argue over how best to deal with the worsening situation. Among them are the Guardsmen, daring and organized young Zionists who are determined to start a new life in Palestine. Published 2017 by On the Edge Books.

The Journal Project

Everyone loves a great story and tales of family life have a special resonance. Keeping a journal of family stories will bring you joy, benefit your children, and leave an invaluable record of your unique family for future generations. No one can keep a journal for you; it has to come from you, in your own voice. But it is not difficult to do. This book discusses why you should keep a record of family stories, ways to incorporate journaling into your routine, and how and where to journal. It will encourage you to take the first step and the rest will follow. We are all storytellers. Keep a record of your stories. You will be glad that you did. Published 2016 by On the Edge Books.

In the Middle of Almost

An engrossing collection of funny, poignant and bittersweet stories about busy young women who find men in all the wrong places (the garage attendant across the street, the stay-at-home dad in the playground, the younger man at the diner counter) and discover something about themselves in the process. Published 2014 by On the Edge Books.
