I am very proud to have founded Book Bogglers with fellow author Dr. Cynthia Stuart in 2015 and this year to have won 1st Place in the Next Generation New Indie Award for Regional Fiction. The Northman’s Daughter is a work of mythological/historical fiction based on a tale told to me long ago by my son Ben Ressler with whom I will be attending the awards ceremony here in Manhattan where we’ll meet other writers, editors and readers in the very warm and elegant atmosphere of the Harvard Club.
Currently, I am also proud to be sharing another Book Boggler publication, Donovan’s Charge. This drama tells the tale of Glenn Cox and his 17-year odyssey up north–and the preservation of his spirit until his release. Today a subway singer Glenn will be joining my writing students at ASA College and Hudson Community College to read scenes from the play and discuss his experiences and triumph.
While the range of my writing spans novels, drama and children’s’ books– all celebrate innocence, compassion and finding our way to a richer life through community and kindness. I am honored to be writing my 12th children’s title for Bearport Publishers here in New York City. My Indy and Noah and Link are 2 titles in Hound Town series. (Keep watching for the publication of my upcoming spooky books.) Writing has certainly been a great adventure, and I am thankful for all the students, writers, readers and creative artists I have met along the way. If you’d like a review copy of any of the books you see featured here, please feel free to email me with your request or any other comments or literary questions you may have.
