Author’s Biography

I grew up in Beverly Hills, California. Graduated from Barnard, and while there fell in love with New York City. I had parents who were screenwriters and have three sisters. Made several detours in life until I wrote How to Eat Like a Child, 500 words about children and food, which was published in the New York Times Magazine, and that was when I realized I was a writer. That article became a book, which, to my great good fortune, became a best seller. I became a contributing editor at New York Magazine, met and married Jerome Kass (screenwriter and playwright) and then moved back to Los Angeles and lived there for many years until I moved back to my beloved Manhattan.

My husband died in 2015. We’d been married 32 years. After that life took many left turns, some perilous, some wondrous. I have written about them in my book Left on Tenth. My passion is mostly work. I am happy at my desk. I have always written in many forms—I love bouncing among them—and have written adult novels, humor, children and YA books, as well as movies, plays, and occasional magazine pieces. But I also love to cook, love to bake especially, and am extremely fond of watching television, especially tennis.
