I’m an author and freelance journalist, living in a leafy corner of Brooklyn, NY with my daughter, my husband and my dog. More than anything, I love to make things: meals, random Lego sculptures, knitted sweaters, and stories. I especially love small stories that you have to squint at the world around you to find. Sometimes these stories are about food, or crafts, or science, or people. More and more lately, these stories are written for children. But always, they’re about something I thought deserved a closer look. Snoop around the pages of this site for a closer look at some of the things I’ve been up to.
