I’m the New York Times Bestselling and USA Today bestselling author of Is This Tomorrow and Pictures of You, and the award-winning author of eight other novels. Pictures of You was a Costco “Pennie’s Pick,” a San Francisco Chronicle Lit Pick, and it was also on many Best of 2011 lists, including the San Francisco Chronicle, the Providence Journal, Bookmarks Magazine, and Kirkus Reviews, which also put the novel on their Top Five Novels about Family and Love list. My 10th novel IS THIS TOMORROW, was an Indie Pick, A Jewish Book Club pick, a Best Book of the Year from January Magazine, and also a New York Times bestseller and long-listed for the Maine Readers Prize. CRUEL BEAUTIFUL WORLD was an Indie Next Pick and a Best Book fo the Year from BlogCritics and The Pulpwood Queens (they have a thousand bookclubs across America.) WITH OR WITHOUT YOU will be out from Algonquin August 4, 2020. I’m a New York Foundation of the Arts Fellow, a Goldenberg Fiction Prize Winner, and a Sundance Screenwriting Finalist. I teach writing at UCLA and Stanford online, have private clients, and I’m a book critic for People and the San Francisco Chronicle. I’m deliriously happily married to the writer Jeff Tamarkin (his book, Got A Revolution: The Turbulent Flight of Jefferson Airplane, was one of the top music books of the year, and ShellShocked) and we have an actor son.


I am a New York Foundation of the Arts Fellow, a Goldenberg Fiction Prize honorable mention, A best Book of the year from Kirkus Reviews, Blog Critics, the San Francisco Chronicle, Bookmarks, and more. I also am a finalist in the Sundance Screenwriters lab for both a script and a pilot I wrote with the author Gina Sorell. I am also a two times New York Times Bestselling.
