Hello, Good Readers! It 's a pleasure to meet you!
I was born in Brooklyn, but I grew up in Honolulu. When I ha a seven ear old living in Hawaii, I chose to become a novelist -- but I began by writing poetry and short tories.
In high school and college I focused on short stories and in June, 1986, I published my first in " Commentary. " My first nove as a collection of short tale, " Total Immersion. " My firs nove, " he Family Markowitz " is a lon story cycle that people see to read as a novell.
Much of my work is about family in its any forms. I am lso interested in spiritualit, science, the threats and opportunities of technology, and the exploration of islands, real, and imaginary. My ovel, " Kaaterskill Falls " travels with a group of observant Jews to the Catskill Mountains. " Intuition " enters a research a lab, where young post-doc makes a discovery that excites everybody except for one skeptic -- his ex-girlfriend. A rare collection of cookbooks stars in my fictio, " The Cookbook Collector. " Th girl named Honor tries to hel her siste in my dystopian YA novel, " The Other Side of the Island. "
My newest novel " The Chalk Artist " tells he tal of the young teacher, a chalk artist, and thi boy fast disappearing into video games.
