More About the Author

An armful of books is one of the most delicious feelings I can imagine. Adventure, wisdom, mystery, all nestled in the crook of one arm, the crease in my elbow grins in anticipation. I was one of those luckynerdy kids who was happiest tucked away in my room, stomach to the mattress, a book propped against my pillow. The world fell away, leaving me free to enter the world of whatever author I was traipsing after.

Little surprise that I went from reading words to writing them. First journals and troves of letters, then essays, then books (two published; one in a drawer; one making the rounds), a blog ( and more essays. Book number one, This Jewish Life: Stories of Discovery, Connection and Joy, out of print for a few years, has just been brought out by the wonderful and dedicated folks at Read the Spirit Books. Book number two, I love Jewish faces, celebrates Jewish diversity.

My essays and feature stories have appeared in dozens of mainstream and Jewish presses including Good Housekeeping, Newsweek, Moment, Hadassah and the Forward. A riff on my cowboy boots (seal grey leather with wonderful turquoise tooling) a year or two back, got me selected as Real Simple's Reader of the Month. Each month, I don my "Dear Debra" hat, as the advice columnist for Red Thread Magazine. In the not too distant future, Read the Spirit will be publishing Walking by the Way, Universal Wisdom from a Real Jewish Mother, a collection of my parenting essays written over the years and if the stars align, a second children's book titled This is the Farm that Iris Built.
