Biographical and Professional Information
After a brief detour going to medical school and residency in psychiatry and child psychiatry, I'm back to my first love, writing. I'm currently in a dystopic fiction phase, but previously was all about sweet, uplifting middle grade fiction, especially that starring children who face medical or mental health challenges.

Drift: A Gargoyle School Christmas Story (Gargoyle School Stories)
CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform. 2014
Drifttells the story of Red, a sixth grader trying to solve one of those mundane but tortuous problems of life, managing to have a fun-filled vacation despite difficult, divorced parents behaving inanely, even giving each other the silent treatment. Luckily, Red's attention deficit disorder (ADD) doesn't stand in his way (it even helps!), giving him a chance to save the day, all while offering some kids out there with ADD a hero they can relate too. As a fictional child psychiatrist says far too often, different is good. She has a point.
