In addition to writing fiction, I also write for magazines and websites, mostly about family life, health, and wellness. My writing has been published by The New York Times, The Huffington Post, MariaShriver.com, The Times of India, POPSUGAR, Writer’s Digest, The Nest, Glamour, Mind Body Green, The Bump, Westchester Magazine, Serendipity, and others.
Throughout my career I’ve done marketing, communications, and writing work for magazines, Internet companies, nonprofit organizations, and advertising and PR agencies in Los Angeles, New York, Boston, and San Francisco.
Ever since I was a child, I have found true joy in writing. From my earliest notebooks filled with poems about loves lost to my essays documenting my journey through motherhood, I have chronicled my life in words. There’s something about an intense scrabble game, a challenging crossword puzzle, an impossible paragraph. It comes down to the words, and words are what I love.
I am also passionate about loads of other things: Friday family movie nights, very dark chocolate (especially with little crunchies in them), warm beaches, evolving, romantic comedies, Jane Austen and Jeffrey Archer, party dresses, hiking, raising resilient kids, dinner parties, punctuality, Saturday night happy hour with my husband, balance, boot camp, kale shakes, true friends, thank you notes, and optimism.
I grew up in Los Angeles’ San Fernando Valley, and I was valedictorian of my high school. From there I traveled east and graduated from the University of Pennsylvania where I studied communications and English. Now, I live just outside of New York City with my husband and our three boys.
