I love visiting book clubs!

If you have a group of readers and you'd like to discuss my novel THE HANDBOOK FOR LIGHTNING STRIKE SURVIVORS, please don't hesitate to contact me @

I always have a blast meeting new people and discussing the characters. I'm also up for phone discussions of Skyping.

michele (This book club was one of my favorites: self described as a wine club disguised as a book club. The food was great. The wine even better. And the conversations--hysterical.) Thanks, ladies!

First Day of School

My son started school yesterday. He is precious. For three days leading up to the start of kindergarten, I think I cried, realizing this is the end of one phase of childhood. He's spending his days elsewhere.

I didn't cry when I dropped him off on Tuesday. Did any of you guys cry when you took your kids their first day? It is NOT an easy thing to do.

He's growing up!

From the novel in progress...

He took Gloria’s hand in his and gently parting her fingers, kissed her palm. He pressed it to his lips. His breath was warm on her hand. “I should write a poem about you.”

“I’d like that.” And Gloria loved him. She loved Sheff—understanding that love is not about penises or having babies. It’s about poetry and laughter and lines, whether from books or scars that weave and hold us together.
