History in a Tin Box


Writing became my way of breathing life into the girl on the cover of The Sweetness, the novel inspired by my family’s complicated history. I learned about her unexpectedly, years ago, on a dark, December afternoon while visiting my elderly aunt in Brooklyn─ where she’d lived for nearly fifty years.

It was on one of these visits when she took an old cookie tin from the hall closet and placed it on the oilcloth. Hoping it contained…

As a woman you need to prioritize

As someone running a small, successful and well-known business in the town where I live, I often have young and older women alike coming up to me and asking me the secret of my successful work-life balance. I feel good that these women consider me as someone who can dispense them with good advice but many times it becomes a bit overwhelming too. I feel like telling them, “It’s heart-warming that you are sharing your troubles with me, but I can assure you that I still haven’t figured out life…

[SWP: Behind the Book] The Sweetness: the girl on the cover

“So,” some may ask, “is that you on the book cover?” I shake my head…no. There’s no need to explain that the child adorning the cover of my novel, The Sweetness, was born years before me; and no need to say “but we are related,” and certainly no need to mention…
