I was raised an only child in what felt like a small town in Northern California. Besides being an only child I was the only Jewish child in school. I guess my writing career started when I was six and someone asked me how many brothers and sisters I had. I answered "six" and went on to name my stuffed animals as siblings. My sweet mother interpreted my imagination as that of a story teller. I started writing poetry for holiday gifts that year and we soon realized a young writer was born.
