I got my start in writing as a journalist and a college instructor of composition, journalism, and English as a Second Language. My work has appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Moscow Times, Quartz, Dow Jones Newswires, Scary Mommy, Kveller, and others, winning awards from the New York Press Association and The Pentagon. I hold graduate degrees in Comparative Literature and in Communications. I also help others, from individuals to organizations, tell their stories.
My nonfiction book about immigrant families, Parenting with an Accent: How Immigrants Honor Their Heritage, Navigate Setbacks, and Chart New Paths for their Children, will be published by Beacon Press on Nov. 9, 2021. I'm represented by the Robin Straus Literary Agency and probably eat too much borsch.
