|My Occupation||Registered Dental Hygienist|
I was born in Providence, RI in 1977. Adopted as an infant, I learned about my adoption in a high school biology class when I was 17 years old. This is my first book - an autobiographical account based on real life events of my adoption.
My passion for animals started when I was just a young child and, over my lifetime, I have adopted and cared for numerous animals.
I am a piano player, singer and songwriter. I was a featured performer on AMC Network's SHOWVILLE - Season 1.
When I am not creating books or performing I work as a Registered Dental Hygienist helping people maintain and improve their health.

I live in Rhode Island with my fiancé, Myra Edelstein, and our many, many pets!
|Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...|
|My fiancé, Myra, met me when I was working in a pet shop. I am writing and illustrating my next children's book on the many wonderful and interesting creatures you find in the fish and reptile room. It will be a sweet story about friendship and working in a partnership to take care of your pets.|
|This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)|
|The Adventures of Tex and Elion is a book about a subject that many people might find difficult to discuss... adoption. This is a story about helping those in need and about celebrating the joy of adoption and creating a family. The author hopes that this story will help parents and teachers have conversations with young people about the importance of helping those in need and appreciating the differences that make us unique.|
