I’m the author of American Widow (art by Sungyoon Choi), a graphic novel memoir, about my experiences as a 9/11 widow and new mother. My book was listed as a New York Times Editors’ Choice. I’m currently writing a dog-centric memoir.
I’ve written essays for the New York Times, the Guardian, Psychologies, Redbook, and salon.com, among others.
I also design, develop, and teach traditional and innovative writing workshops for students of all ages. I’ve taught: Writing for Wellness, Graphic Novel, College Application Essay Writing and the 20 Minute Memoir. I also work with students individually or in small groups. (One day I hope to teach a class on the B train.)
I live in Manhattan.
