I write. I take photographs.



I'm the author of "When She Sleeps" (Toby Press) a New York Public Library Selection for "Best Books for the Teen Age." I'm also a former Los Angeles Juvenile Court judge, and the author of "Juvenile Court - A Judge's Guide for Young Adults and their Parents" (Scarecrow Press)

But besides all that, I've lived in the heart of Paris and in a teeny apartment overlooking the town of Saint Tropez in the South of France. I now live in Los Angeles with my amazing husband, David.

I love the beach, dogs, chocolate, hiking the Santa Monica Mountain trails, and making my friends stop for me when I see a photograph I absolutely have to take. (In full disclosure, they usually don't stop and end up one block ahead of me, but that's okay)

I loved writing "Keep Her." Maddie is a little bit like me (sometimes) But her journey took some unexpected turns, and that's the fun of it.
