Someone sits by my side as I write. Can you find her photo below?

I always have a writing companion and here she is! Her name is Jazz.

Bringing true events to life is an important goal for me, especially in my new non-fiction book. For fun, I go back to the picture book genre.

You'll always find history, civil rights and Jewish overtones in my work. There will also be much for the classroom, stories that open doors and minds.
