I've always known what I want to do when I "grow up."

Well, aside from the obvious "author", that's not entirely true. I've had

trouble choosing a career path (aka Author's Alternate/college major).

So I guess a better phrase would be I've always known what i want to be

when I "grow up" (the quotations mean that I'm using Grow Up to mean go

to college, and get a job). I want to be doing something I enjoy, and

that makes… Continue

Back to Israel: Recall what's foreign

When you live in a foreign place, it can become home. You forget how foreign it is.

Then you go to another foreign country, only to discover that it doesn’t seem so foreign. And you realize that the place you live actually IS extremely foreign.

That’s what happened to me during the last week, when I toured Germany to read from my third Palestinian rime novel THE SAMARITAN’S…

Another Cool Review

I like to share comments I receive about my work. Today I'd like to introduce you to James Knight. We met Saturday at the Virginia Festival of the Book but he was already a fan.

Actually, it was James' wife Robin who bought my novel Russian Roulette for him. Later he wrote me a very complimentary email about the book. I love getting that kind of note, but it was even more exciting when James and Robin walked up to me at the Virginia Festival of the…

Recently, I found an old journal of mine. I was enjoying reading about

my past self until I came across a page that had only a few words in

the center:

Jia, gyvysi timg, og auy dep'v sief 'ch'ot auy esi puv et exituni et auys lopfishesvep timg.

It took me a moment before I realized my past self was chastising my now

present self. But because I realized what I'd written, I'd earned my

past self's… Continue

I probably have a broader and more varied family than most but I think every family has a spectrum. Meaning that among those people you love there are probably some you don’t understand real well, who are a bit… eccentric. Maybe even difficult.

I figure families are like fudge . . . mostly sweet, with a few nuts. But we need to remember that today's mighty oak is just yesterday's nut that held its ground.

Raven Affair was released, soon excerpt...

visit for details and Crossroads..

The night was cloudy, dark like ink...

...and the rain drizzled on Chelsea. As Big Ben struck the eleventh

hour, Dino and the American arrived at the eighth floor apartment

of the safe house and knocked on the door. Three sharp raps

followed by another two, as agreed upon earlier.

“Who is it? Is it you Angelo?” a deep voice queried in Italian

from inside. The old… Continue

[Latest entry on my blog,]

I visited one of my local middle schools this past week. It was

awesome! I met with a group of about fifteen students who were

interested in writing, and I talked mostly about characters. I even had

a PowerPoint to go along with it. (Yes...that made me feel very pro.)

One of the points I made in my presentation is about long and cliche

descriptions. Personally, i prefer to"show" more than "tell" when it

comes to character appearance. This includes inferring a… Continue

VA Book Festival Rocked!

The Virginia Festival of the Book was as much fun this year as it has

been the last five. As always Saturday was a full day of watching

panels and greeting old pals, many of whom I never see except at

writing events. I had quite a pleasant group at my table for the

luncheon, and Julia Spencer-Fleming turned out to be an entertaining

keynote speaker.

Naturally the highpoint of the…
