I am a writer living in Manhattan with two children — a 4-year-old daughter and a 2-year-old son. I am a scientist by training (Ph.D. in Chemistry) and after briefly working in pharmaceuticals and biotech, I spent 10 years teaching science at high schools, a middle school, and a college in New York City. While I have always loved to write, it took on a new fervor after my daughter was born. I found becoming a parent both humbling and empowering, such that fears and blocks I had about creative work began to dissolve. I have several manuscripts in progress — two children’s picture books with a science angle, and I’ve recently finished a first draft of a novel. My novel is a thriller set in a management consulting firm. I love thinking about the implications of biotechnology on human health and behavior. In addition to working on my manuscripts, I also write a blog at iloveagoodstoryblog.wordpress.com.
