What i do

I have an insatiable drive to transform myself and others.

I believe in the infinite power of creating and achieving our dreams.

I’m a wife, a mother, an optimist, a pianist. I think too much and don’t clean my house enough.
I revel in your incredible stories of strength, hope and courage.



Remember “The boys in Japan”? That’s just one of the complex, explosive stories I’ve covered, where every word must be carefully weighed. I’ve been privileged to interview the best and the brightest and share their inspiration with the world.
My hundreds of articles have been published in premier magazines and websites, including Mishpacha, Ami, Aish.com and Chofetz Chaim Heritage Foundation.


With 12 bestselling novels published to-date, I blend real-life characters, humor, and sensational plotlines. Baruch Hashem, my serialized stories have captured the hearts of hundreds of thousands of readers across the globe. I use fiction as a vehicle to spark respectful, introspective dialogue on a variety  of issues within the global chareidi community. It is truly gratifying to watch my intelligent readers take the conversation to the next level.


It is always a thrill to connect and make new friends, and that’s the way I feel every time I speak to audiences around the world–especially when we’re raising funds for a noble cause! My travels have taken me to so many wonderful destinations in Belgium, London, Israel, Canada, and the United States. I’m all about keeping it real and deep, sharing my personal journey and weaving it with the  uplifting, incredible stories that have been entrusted to me by precious people like you.


I was definitely born with a silver pen in my mouth, but for as far back as I can remember, I’ve also had an entrepreneurial and inventive bent. I’m a big believer in following our dreams and jumping right in to try to make them happen. I can’t say every venture has been a success :-), but that’s just par for the course–and part of the learning curve.


There’s nothing more energizing than empowering women and teens to expand their skillset and reach their goals. My workshops, both online and face-to-face, are always packed with actionable information and so much fun. Teaching about the craft I love, my passion naturally shines through!


I’ve always had a thing for mentoring, whether as a “big sister”, a bnos leader, or a go-to address for teens. My work enables me to mentor writers, both budding and pro, to help them grow and achieve success. By founding my Masterpiece communities for both women and teens, I have made mentorship a sustainable goal so I can help as many writers as possible.

Generating New Ideas.
Creating New possibilities.

My work is both eminently gratifying and an enormous responsibility.
Putting out the written word before hundreds of thousands of astute readers
definitely ain’t for the faint of heart.
Lucky for me, I’ve never been particularly faint of heart :-).

Got a Question?

I’ve got an answer.
Well, I hope I do, anyway :-).
Believe me, I’ve been asked it all. Everything from how I name my characters to what I ate for dinner last night.
Ask away, and I’ll do my best to respond.

    Menorah Everlasting

    The photograph is haunting—a juxtaposition of life and death, revival and destruction. A menorah, symbol of the indomitable spirit of the Jewish People, stands proudly in the front window of a Jewish home in Germany. Directly across the street lurks the ominous shadow...
