I was born in the Bronx and grew up on Long Island where I spent most of my free time reading Teen Beat magazine and Archie comics and watching movies at the local multiplex. Thinking I'd one day become a professor/diplomat/world traveler, I studied International Relations and Asian Studies at Tufts University and Nanzan University in Japan. Instead, I folowed my heart and moved to L.A., where I received an M.F.A. from  USC's School of Cinematic Arts and discovered what made me happy -- telling stories.

After graduating, I was selected to participate in the Sundance Institute's Screenwriter's Lab and Film Independent's Directors Lab with my first feature script, The Lost Tribe of Long Island. All these experiences - personal, professional, creative - lead me to write my debut picture book, You Are (Not) Small. Being able to create it with my talented illustrator-husband, Christopher Weyant, has made the journey all the more rewarding.
