Thank you for visiting my web site.
I began my writing life as a children’s book author in 1976 with Tom Seaver: Portrait of a Pitcher and The George Foster Story. My passions veered from baseball to Jewish holidays, a grave disappointment to my sons. After 20 years of writing books for young people, I took the plunge and went to the Academy for Jewish Religion and was ordained in 1998. Although I’d gotten a B.A. from UCLA and a teaching credential from USC, my seminary days were my happiest academic experience.
