My shiny new webpage, at is live! It’s all about THE REVOLUTION OF MARINA M. and it’s a beauty.  Step into the world of the Russian Revolution and my adventurous young heroine.  It’s a work in progress but it certainly gives you a sense of the book. There’ll be excerpts, more photo galleries, but you’ll get a taste.

I’ll continue to blog here about writing and life, and the writing life, putting up my stories and observations, but the website will be all about the books.

Stop by, tell me what you think of it!


Short takes from Los Angeles Review of Books

Hi All–this morning I stumbled upon this cache of little videos from conversations I did last year with the Los Angeles Review of Books!  Opinionated as always…

My take on the Future of the Novel.

My view on hierarchies of veracity in non-fiction.

Thoughts about my new novel, Marina Makarova.

And while you’re there, look around at some of the other wonderful interviews they’ve done, with writers like Aimee Bender, Michael Tolkin, Paul Mandelbaum, Laila Lalami, Mark Haskell Smith, Jerry Stahl.
