Works in Progress –Lost Boys – a middle grade historical fiction about boys sent to fight in the Iran/Iraq war in 1982. Why you may ask is a Jewish girl from California telling this story?Mostly because it’s an important story that no one else has really told. Also many of my stories have to do with kids growing up around adults who expect them to believe as they do without question. NEWS Henry Holt is publishing this in 2017!!!!Time Lessons (working title) – tells the story of a Nina, she’s from L.A., and oblivious to much of the world outside the San Fernando Valley. She is sent time traveling back to her great grandparents lives in the Owens Valley and the middle of the California water war. The journey of figuring out what’s expected of her and by whom leads her to unravel mysteries about the ongoing water struggle, but more importantly about herself and her family.
