With my first book!
Welcome to my website! Here's some info about me . . . My fourth grade teacher gave us a lot of time to write stories, so I started writing in fourth grade and never stopped!
I love to travel. Here I am in front of a mural painted on what is left of the Berlin Wall in Germany (right) and visiting ancient statues in Luxor, Egypt (left)! I have also worked in Haiti as a volunteer teacher.
Now I write books! Here are my friends with one of my books (left) and my desk where I write (right). You can see that sometimes I don't use a computer but write the story into a notebook. Later, I type it.
Right now I live in Vienna, Austria, in Europe. Austria borders Italy, Slovenia, Hungary, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Germany, and Switzerland. Vienna is the capital city of Austria. About 2 million people live here.
You may have heard that every year near Christmas time they have parades for kids with monsters called Krampus! To the right and left are photos from a Krampus parade.
German is the official language of Austria but each region has its own dialect and slang. Here in Vienna, the German everyone speaks sounds to me something like my grandma's Yiddish.
To the right and left are signs in German. Feel free to try to guess what they say!
Thanks so much for visiting my website! I hope it has all the info you’re looking for. You can contact me anytime. I'm always happy to hear from readers. You can always check out this half-hour interview with me which aired on NPR Ohio too.
