WINNER of the 2015 New Millennium Writings Nonfiction Award. So meaningful to me as I am here in Morocco right now, in the part of the world I love the most. Here is the direct link to INTO THE WORLD, the excerpt from my childhood memoir called “Reflections from Istanbul,” which I mostly wrote in Istanbul last summer. It is my discovery of the meaning of faith, during my family’s escape out of Egypt right before the 6-Day War and how those experiences relate to what is happening in the world today.

I am, more than anything, a Traveler, always seeking new ways to learn and grow. Especially in these challenging times, I am a passionate advocate of free speech. The practice of martial arts is a way of life for me. I am the co-founder of InsideOUT Writers, a creative writing program for incarcerated youth, and the founder of the MY WORLD PROJECT, connecting youth in remote areas through art and writing. I'm happiest living out of a suitcase and seeing where the next step in my journey will take me. For the past three years that has meant living in Luxor, Egypt, where I started the first boxing club for girls on the West Bank. I'm the author of numerous children's books and essays, as well as the Urban Fantasy series NIGHT ANGELS CHRONICLES. This year sees publication of my sci-fi/dark fantasy work, FIREFLY LANE, with Terror House Press. At the moment, I'm riding out this pandemic in Phoenix, but who can say where tomorrow will take me.
