My book launch for my novel, Cherry Blossom Diaries Buffalo to Washington 1942 - 1945 will be June 18th! They are actual diaries from a young woman who left home to work in Washington. Work, love, friendship, soldiers, colonels and a blue Buick. I took the diaries, changed names and granted myself some artistic license. Deborah's was a life worth reading about.

What happens when an actress starts an off-stage affair in the persona of the character she's rehearsing? I published this personal essay in Medium's Human Parts collection this week: https://medium.com/human-parts/an-audience-of-one-6a5190e30dc3

Some six years after writing the award-winning memoir Silent Sorority, I am happy to share my latest work: Finally Heard: A Silent Sorority Finds Its Voice

It moves beyond the personal to examine the complex inter-relationship of the psychological, social and cultural implications of ‘Generation IVF.’ Today’s cultural preoccupation with parenting and the growing commercial focus of the for-profit fertility industry has birthed a fear-driven patient/consumer population and society ill-equipped to process reproductive failure. This ebook makes clear that the disproportionate emphasis on ‘magical thinking’ and the new industry focus on 'social egg freezing' has bred an expectation of parenthood. This creates new challenges and decisions not only for women but for parents who may one day be called upon to counsel children on decisions around reproductive health.
